You've Never Seen This Many Christmas Lights in One Place!
There's decorating your house for the holidays, and then there's this: a house covered in so many Christmas lights, we bet it's visible from space.
Thirty-year-old British man Alex Goodhind uses an estimated 200,000 lights to cover his home and yard every year. But don't feel bad if your light show pales in comparison. Goodhind is a trained electrician, and he puts in five weeks of all-day work to create the display. The electricity bill at the end? A rumored £1,000 (approximately $1,570) a month!
The lit-up Santas and illuminated reindeer are for more than entertainment; Goodhind uses his holiday display as a way of raising money for Dorothy House Hospice, where his mother was cared for before her death. Through the light spectacular, he's said to have raised £15,000 for the organization over the years.
Take a good look at the house now because Goodhind's father told the Daily Mail that the strain of setting up the show year after year is starting to wear on his son, and this might be the last year of the display. Say it isn't so!
