Tell KFC how much you love the controllable Christmas lights

controllable-christmas-lights-2008I have written before about Alek Komarnitsky and his controllable Christmas lights.

Alek is doing it again this year, of course. And, as usual, he’s using it as a way to raise awareness about Celiac Disease. Oh, and raise money for research.

Here, I’ll let him tell it in his own words:

Kentucky Fried Chicken is running a nationwide Holiday Traditions Contest and Colonel Sanders has selected the Controllable Christmas Lights for Celiac Disease as a semi-finalist – see those at

The winner receives an entire year of finger-lickin’ good KFC chicken; Original, BBQ, or (my favorite) Extra Crispy – that’s a lot of 15 piece buckets!

The winner also receives $1,000 and while I’m tempted to use that to buy even more Christmas Lights, I will have KFC donate the entire amount directly to the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research which my (crazy) holiday lights have already raised over $30,000 for.

The winner is determined by Internet voting through December 21st, 2008 so please consider voting for my site and help win a $1,000 for Celiac Disease. More info at

So surf on by, tell your friends, blog about it, spread the word, etc.

Merry Christmas, HO-HO-HO, and BUUURRRPPPP!!! ;-)

Go vote #16 today!

Update: The Controllable Christmas lights won! $1000 was sent directly to the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research.
