Man sets new world record for most Christmas lights on his house

AUSTRALIA -

An Australian family set a new world record this weekend for having the most Christmas lights attached to their home. 

Friends and neighbors showed up to take a closer look at the 502,165 Christmas lights that illuminate David Richard's property.

He admits attaching more than half a million light bulbs is very time-consuming.  The electricity bill will certainly be higher in the following weeks as well.  Richards say it'll cost about an extra $2,300 a month to run his light display.
