A homeowner is able to heat his home with a large array of Christmas decorations, including 52,000 lights.


An Indiana man says he does not need to heat his home for the entire month of December thanks to his large display of Christmas decorations.

About 52,000 lights, 86 trees of all sorts and sizes, and hundreds of other themed displays help keep the home at a very warm 85 degrees.

Brandon Smith has been growing his holiday display since 2002. Each year, he adds new items.

"Eight more trees this year than last year," Smith says, "Lots of different types of lights from different states that you can't find really around here."

After Smith is done decorating, the public is welcome inside to take a peek for free. 

Smith said a box is available for spectators to donate to a local hospital for children.
