With the holiday season well underway, people are putting up their Christmas lights. Some of the displays can get pretty elaborate and amazing which is just what one fire department in Newfoundland did. The Gander Fire Rescue team's Christmas display is a light show synchronized perfectly to music.

Their music of choice was Carol of the Bells by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. While it might just be the most epic holiday song ever, it was made even more epic when this fire department put on a festive light display with its fire hall and trucks choreographed to a version of the song.

The local firefighters posted a video of the musical undertaking on Facebook on December 4 and it starts with the local police force checking out "suspicious activity" at the fire hall.

Once the all-clear is given and the patrol car leaves, the doors to the station open where four trucks are parked and then the show begins.

"Merry Christmas from Gander Fire Rescue and Municipal Enforcement. Have a safe and enjoyable holiday season," the caption of the video reads.

If the Facebook comments are anything to go by, people really love this light show.

"Why am I crying while I watch this over and over? You guys and gals are superb volunteers," said Lorna Budden.

Jennifer Hiltz commented, "This struck me right in the feels!!"

"This is freaking awesome!! Love it!! Merry Christmas to you all. Hope all stay safe especially during the holidays," Alicia Brown wrote.

Gander Fire Rescue provides fire and rescue services to the town of Gander by both career and volunteer firefighters. The department has four chief officers and four 10-person crews.

"Well done crew!!! Happy Holidays to all and thanks for protecting your community," said Wayne A. Purchase on Facebook.

The team's Christmas video was also posted on Facebook as the page's cover.

Between the two posts, the video has been watched more than 137,000 times and shared 4,100 times as of publication. 

"Oh my goodness this is GENIUS! Huge high five to whoever was the creative mind that made this happen! And of course to the real hero’s inside the building," Denise Collins commented.

According to a comment on the crew's Facebook page, the video was put together by Const. Wanda Jenkins.
