Family Spends $82k to Light Christmas Lights, Clark Griswold Would Approve

Christmas is a time of family, friends, and decorations for folks all around the world. I put up the usual decorations with a tree, stockings, and some garland. I even throw a few lights on the house even though it’s two story and really steep.

Some people take decorating their house to a Griswoldian level like the Faucher family in Delaware. These folks hove about a million lights on the house and in the yard. The thing that disturbed me at first glance is the thought of having to take down all those lights and tracking down why that one bulb won’t light up.

Then you think about how much it would cost to turn those lights on. According to HouseLogic the family pays about $686 an hour to run the lights and will rack up a bill of $82,320 over the month. If they went green with LED lights, they could cut that bill down to $10,680.
