Couple let strangers control Christmas lights

A couple are letting strangers control their Christmas lights.

Ken and Rebecca-Ellen Woods, who live in Fairbanks, Alaska, have set up a specific website to let random people on the Internet turn their festive lights on and off, the Daily Telegraph newspaper reports.

Mr Woods said: "The very first year we did it, we did one string of lights on the tree.

"It was cool but then we added a web cam pointing at the tree and then [interest] blew up. A week into it, my wife turned to me and said, 'Next year these are going outside'. It was super annoying in the middle of the night.

"You would not believe the number of people who sit for hours and turn the lights on and off."
