No less than the Houston Chronicle is marvelling at Canberra’s Richards family who have reclaimed their world record for the most christmas lights on a residential property:

An Australian family has reclaimed their Guinness World Record by stringing up more than half a million Christmas lights around their suburban home.

Guinness World Records official Chris Sheedy confirmed Monday that the Richards family of Canberra set the record for Christmas lights on a residential property with 502,165 twinkling bulbs.

Apparently they’re at the limit of what can be done with a domestic power supply, but are considering the soothing hum of generators sounding through Forrest to take it to next level.
