A Delaware man has been going all-in for his home's Christmas light display for over thirty years, spending two months preparing the spectacle. 

After losing both of his parents, Tom Smith said the display needs to be bright enough that his parents can see the lights from heaven. 

Smith's electric bill reaches as high as $4,000 to power the more than 700,000 lights around his two-acre property.

According to a local news station, the display is so popular that state police have to come to his neighborhood just to direct the extra traffic.
