In the intense battle for Christmas light supremacy there is a new/old champion. The 502,165 lights that the cover the Canberra house of David and Janean Richards has claimed the Guinness World Records' title of "most lights on a residential property".
After taking the title in 2011, the Richards were eclipsed by the Gay family from Lagrangeville, New York in 2012. This year's display breaks the current record by over 150,000 lights. "The display at 3 Tennyson Crescent, Forrest, includes more than 50km of LED string lights, 520 Lightorama channels controlling a 50-metre, walk through, multi-coloured canopy and an 18-metre light-controlled tree (all animated and synchronised to music)," notes Chris Sheedy.
We're sure the Richards' neighbors are thrilled with the couple's competitive spirit and abundance of holiday cheer.
