A New York family who set a Guinness World Record with 601,736 Christmas lights on their property in 2014 said this year's display tops their own record with a total 687,000 lights.
Tim Gay of Lagrangeville, whose family first set the record for most lights on a residential property with 346,283 Christmas lights in 2012 before topping it with their 2014 display, said the latest version of the ERDAJT Holiday Lights Display -- named for his children's initials -- features 687,000 lights.
Gay said going all-out for Christmas is a tradition he inherited from his mother.
The family's annual light display serves as a fundraiser for local charities, including the Union Vale Fire Department's community fund.
Gay said he is hoping to collect $500,000 with this year's show.
