North Richland Hills (CBSNewsTexas.com) — If you’re looking for a unique way to decorate for Christmas, why not celebrate the biggest gift of the year? For Jesse Gonzales and his wife Angela, that means turning their home into a tribute to the 2023 World Series champions.
Their driveway is adorned with over 10,000 lights, a giant LED screen showing iconic moments from the series, and even jerseys on skeletons – an homage to the Rangers past, present and future. The entire show is choreographed to Post Malone’s song, “Congratulations.”
“Oh, the reaction…it’s been phenomenal,” said Gonzales. “We’ve had people come by every single day, and I walk out here and talk to a lot of big Ranger fans.” It only makes sense that when the Texas Rangers won the World Series, they would combine their usual enormous holiday light show with the highlight of every Texan’s year. “As soon as the Rangers won the World Series, my wife was like, ‘You gotta go out there and change the theme up.’”
For Gonzales and Angela, this project was particularly meaningful. They met on their first date at a Rangers game and got engaged a year later at another one. So it only made sense that when the Rangers won the World Series, they would create a tribute to their favorite team in honor of their special day.
Their entire family says it was certainly their year to “Go and take it,” and hope more people stop by to enjoy it before their real Christmas decorations go up on Dec. 1st. For Jesse Gonzales, it’s all about sharing his love for baseball with his community – whether it’s through decorating his home or simply enjoying time with family and friends.
