Alabama Man Decorates Home With 28,000 Christmas Lights

Terry Family Christmas display from 2014 in Decatur, Alabama

An Alabama man has surpassed Clark Griswold with his annual Christmas light show.

The Decatur Daily reports this is the 10th year of Thomas Terry’s growing display on Harrison Street Southeast in Decatur.

The lights are animated to Christmas music and include multi-colored bulbs arranged into two singing Christmas trees, 16 mini-trees, a singing Santa, a singing Mrs. Claus, candy canes and stars. Check out some of his displays from 2014.

Terry’s show is up to 28,550 lights. Clark Griswold, the character portrayed by Chevy Chase in National Lampoon’s “Vacation” movies, had 25,000 lights in the 1989 movie “Christmas Vacation.”

Terry says his goal is to get to 30,000 lights.
