I do large displays for six holidays — Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Fourth of July, Halloween, and Christmas. HALLOWEEN AND CHRISTMAS ARE THE BIGGEST. I started doing this 28 years ago. The first December, I decorated our landlord’s house in Winthrop. That was in the days of big, heavy light bulbs, a nightmare to maintain. The majority of lights now are LED and a lot stronger.
We have MORE THAN 100,000 LIGHTS. Uncountable. The biggest challenge is getting the Halloween lights down and Christmas lights up in a two- to three-week turnaround. We bring in about five to six people every year to help.
