Forget music-themed houses, the Sterling Fire Department got into the holiday spirit by syncing the lights on five trucks to Christmas music.

The amazing effect is created by filming each possible light combination separately and then editing them together to go along with the music.

Jason Bostron, Captain at the Sterling Fire Department said, in total it took about 20 hours, done while off-duty.

The department created a similar video last holiday season. Bostron said at the time he "wanted to show some light to our amazing fire department."

Bostron said the addition of flamethrowers and booking Santa Claus made the 2018 video even more of a challenge than the original.

"It’s not easy to get Santa!" he said.
