LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- On Christmas day one of the best light displays in Greater Lafayette is spreading happiness and cheer.
Thirty-five thousand lights are used in the week's long light show.
Chris Lash is the man behind the display.
It's queued up to music and plays about 40 songs.
Every year is a different theme and this year the theme is the Nativity.
It is set up in the garage and was made in the Philippines back in 2017.
Lash said it's a year-long process, but he loves seeing people's eyes twinkle when they watch the lights.
"People ask about the work behind it and it is not work at this point," said Lash. "It's still a hobby and when it becomes work then we might have to reevaluate, but right now it is enjoyable and I have seen a lot of smiles on people's faces ear to ear from hundreds of people that come out here. That is the driving force behind it.
Hundreds of people drive to the lights and sit and enjoy.
The display is up through Saturday Dec. 28.
It runs each from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
It's in the 2600 block of Tristan Drive on Lafayette's south side.
