I watched it for quite a while...must have been 20 or more minutes...I was actually expecting Christmas lights when I read the title...but then I got interested in how they did it...

I once made a "Matrix" screen saver...lol...it was a dir /s command that was pretty funny...except I couldn't change the color and make it a continuous loop...so I gave up...
