Congregation of the Mother Co-Redemptrix Christmas light show

The Congregation of the Mother Co-Redemptrix is a Catholic religious order with a monastery in Carthage, Missouri. "Mother Co-Redemptrix" refers to Mary, mother of Jesus, and her role in redemption. The congregation is dominated by men of Vietnamese extraction. During the Christmas season, they offer a huge animated light display which is primarily biblical, but manages to work in the occasional pink panther on a scooter or goofy bear. In previous years they even had a Pokémon pikachu .

This video pans from the pink panther on scooter to Noah's ark to some pink flamingos:

David and Goliath is probably the most impressive of their biblical displays:

Moses directs cars to a parted Red's literally red:

And now Moses has the Ten Commandments:

They were shutting down the lights as I went through just at 10 PM on December 13, but you can still get a feel for their disco Noel:

The light show runs 5:30 to 10 PM through New Years Day.
