A Gift of Light [Multimedia Final]

John Doyle's Christmas light displays in Arlington, Virginia have been an attraction for the past 18 years. He creates these intricate displays based off of sparks of ideas in his mind. He starts with a sketch and then, with a masterful hand, lights up the entire Fairlington community. These displays have gained attention in local and national newspapers, as well as Time magazine. Though they are something that many community members, especially those that have grown up seeing these gorgeous illuminated displays, everything, just like the inevitable fizzling out of light, has an end.
