Trending: A guide for startups to prepare for the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

If the idea of driving past one more Santa and his sleigh yard decoration makes you want to poke your eyeballs out, here’s a light display idea — the Death Star.

In the video posted by YouTuber Colby Powell, you’ll see the whole family get in on the fun — putting together about 2,000 feet of pvc piping, and parachutes to hoist the 23-foot diameter Death Star into place atop their roof.

Very cool — and nary a “Merry Christmas” in sight. Check it out.
