(Radio.com) Even though Prince passed away in April, the tributes to him continue. One Minnesota family found a holiday-centric way to go about honoring the Purple One when they turned their annual Christmas lights display into a mini memorial.

The Staudt family, who live in Chaska, dedicated five minutes of their 14-minute Christmas display to Prince. During the tribute, the lights turn mostly purple and blink to "Purple Rain." There's even a special screen with a rotating Prince symbol featured.

Mike Staudt, the man behind the design, says he uses over 10,000 lights each year, and the family has already earned a great deal of attention from neighbors and passers-by (via Star Tribune).

On YouTube, Staudt wrote about his decision to honor Prince. "Our show is 5 minutes from Prince's Paisley Park recording studio and residence," he shared. "And his passing this year greatly affected our local community. So we decided to honor the great Purple One with a short and simple display during the intermission of our Christmas light show." Watch a clip of the tribute here.
