One New York family continues to top their world-record Christmas display every year. This year is no different, with nearly three-quarters of a million lights.

Timothy Gay goes all out for the holidays. It's a tradition he started back in 1995 for his kids Emily, Daniel, and John. Their Christmas display in Lagrangeville, New York was so big it set a Guinness World Record for the most lights on a residential property. That was back in 2014 when they had 601,736 bulbs.

2021 Record-Breaking Display

In 2021, the Gay family beat their record with a total of 687,000 Christmas lights. Over 250 songs were choreographed for the display that featured nearly 2,000 items controlled by a computer.

2022 Christmas Lights

More lights were added last year, bringing the total to 703,000 lights.

2023 Christmas Lights

This year they are doing it again, adding even more lights, to bring the total to 718,000.

The massive display will open on November 24. It'll run every night through December 28. It is a drive-through-only display and everyone is asked to avoid stopping on the roads.

We recommend coming early in December if you want to take your time and enjoy the display for a longer duration.
