Dotted across the family's 17-acre home are more than 1.2 million Christmas lights.

Linking the lights together is more than three miles of electric cords buried underground. If you strung all the lights out into a straight line, they'll go for 112 miles.

It takes six months to set up the display.

In case you're wondering, the electric bill for the dazzling display comes out to around $12,500.

The family first started the festive tradition in 2002 when they decorated their home with 70,000 lights.
