Adrian Bickford said he had been in his house for eight years and decorated it every Christmas.

“The kids in the town really enjoy the light displays,” he said.

“There are so many people driving around in December looking at the lights and they enjoy it, so that’s why we do it.”

“For as long as I am able, I will be putting up Christmas decorations every year.”
