In keeping with tradition (2009 / 2010 / 2011) here are a few of our favorite parodies, light displays, etc… With that and no further ado, from my family and all of us SLS Construction / AlaGBS, we would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, a Bountiful New Year.

The Energy Nerd & his take on Dr Seuss
