Canberra — An Australian house has reclaimed the Guinness world record they first set in 2011 by stringing up over half a million Christmas lights around their Canberra home.
Their 2011 record of 331,038 bulbs was bested last year by a home in LaGrangeville, New York with 346,283 lights.
This year, Canberra’s Richards family put up 502,165 multicolored streamers, icicles, candy canes, reindeer, and other candescent decorations for a spectacular display of lights.
David Richards says he and his wife Janean and three kids installed the lights to raise funds for SIDS & Kids ACT, a charity that played a crucial role in the couple’s lives when they lost a child years ago.
The public can visit the lights after dark from November 30 to December 26 at 3 Tennyson Crescent, Forrest, reported the Canberra Times.
Entry is via a gold coin donation.
