MERIDIAN, Idaho - An Idaho family is showing their Christmas spirit through their light display -- but they aren’t using any old holiday jingle.
The Cadger family is having a very Dubstep Christmas after they synced their extensive light show on their Meridian, Idaho, house to a mix of "Bangarang" and "Cinema," both of which are by Skrillex.
The video, which was posted on YouTube on Nov. 24, has taken off with more than 142,000 views as of Tuesday morning.

The family must be fond of Skrillex's electronic-style beats because a year ago, their house had the light display synced to the artist’s “First of the Year (Equinox).”
It takes the Cadgers two months to set up the display, which involves laying out more than two miles of extension cords to decorate the home with nearly 40,000 lights, according to a Huffington Post story.
The display is powered by four 16-channel "Light O Rama" controllers hooked up to a computer, according to the family's website. They make an effort to use energy-efficient LED lights, according to the site.
The lights are active on Friday and Saturday night from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. the rest of the week. The Cadgers ask that visitors bring food to donate to the Idaho Food Bank.
