500k Christmas Lights Display Breaks Record

“The Christmas decorating season is in full bloom in Australia, where a family’s use of more than half a million lights has set a new world record. The Richards family’s yard in Forrest, a suburb of Canberra, features a canopy of lights fanning out beneath a large tree whose trunk is wrapped in glowing colors. Janean and David Richards’ display uses 502,165 LED lights that, laid end to end, would stretch for more than 31 miles. The family is reclaiming a record it grabbed in 2011, with 331,038 lights. According to Guinness World Records, their installation also includes ’520 Lightorama channels controlling a 164 feet, walk through, multi-colored canopy and an 59 feet light-controlled tree (all animated and synchronized to music).”
