Australian man takes Christmas light decorations to the extreme, breaking the world record with other half a million LED Christmas lights strung around his property, according to Digital Trends.

David Richards of Canberra, Australia has covered his property with so many lights his house is no longer visible. Taking over a month to set up, 502,156 lights were strung up around Mr. Richards and his family’s property. The spectacular display has earned them the prestige of most number of Christmas lights in the Guinness World Record book.

With half a million lights decorating his home, Mr. Richards' electricity bill will likely skyrocket an additional US $2,300 (NT $68,000). However, aside from wanting to break a world record, the decorations are also in part to raise money for charity. The family was able to raise US $71,000 in 2011.

“I have always loved Christmas. Having the Christmas lights with the community coming in and sharing it is a time when you get to know people you probably should know better,” said Mr. Richards.
