WEST JORDAN — The Nash family is joining in on a national movement to help spread some much-needed cheer during the coronavirus pandemic by stringing up their Christmas lights after seeing a call to do so on social media.

“So we saw a post about two days ago about everybody wanting to set up their Christmas lights just to bring some joy into people’s lives,” said Jorden Nash. “We absolutely love Christmas lights so my wife turned to me and said to me ‘why not’?”

The West Jordan family that lives at 2004 West Arthur Drive, got to work on an intricate, digital display. The lights are programmed to shine to the tunes on their radio program on 99.9 FM.

“Every single light bulb has a computer in it and with that, we can have the computer tell every single light bulb what to be at any time,” Nash said.

The goal is to give families a safe activity to do while practicing social distancing.

“Here is something families can do together,” said Aubree Nash. “It’s out of the house so everyone that’s getting a little cooped up and stir crazy has something to look forward to at the end of the day.”

The Nash family plans to turn on the show every night this week from 7:30-10 p.m.

FM 100.3 also joined in the Christmas spirit, playing holiday music Friday night.
