You can stop stringing up those lights and nailing that Santa to your roof, because this street officially wins Christmas.

A stretch of more than 16 homes in Yucaipa, Calif. coordinated their holiday displays, which light up to music, and the entire show is being captured via drone.

"The Manning Street Christmas Music Light Show", as it is called, runs daily, and people in the area can park their cars and tune into 92.5 FM to experience it.

Coordinator Jeff Maxey uploaded a few different demo videos to his page. In addition to Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas is You" (above), watch the homes perform "Wizards in Winter" by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

New information has come to light in Hello Kitty's plans for total world domination.

The innocent-looking cartoon kitten has penetrated nearly every potential market (she even has her own AK-47) and now the first Hello Kitty Cafe in the United Stated is coming to Orange County, CA, according to LAist.

The cafe is scheduled to open in the summer of 2015, and until that then - if you just really, really need your Hello Kitty fix - there is a mobile truck available for private parties, that serves pastries like donuts and macarons.

The menu features "Dumb Iced Coffee," "Dumb Frappuccinos," and a seasonal "Wuppy Duppy Latte."

Update: Dumb Starbucks was found out to be a stunt by Nathan Fielder for the Comedy Central show "Nathan for You".
