CLINTON COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A Mulberry man is making magic with his home light display for the 8th year in a row. However the lights do more than spread holiday cheer.
Scott Alexander has been making Holiday magic with his home light display and unlike the lights, the work he puts in isn't seasonal.
"All through the summer I'm going through all my lights and setting up and getting things ready to go in places so I know I've got enough for every location," said Alexander.
And to Alexander, every light matters.
"All the lights are timed to the individual music and try to accentuate to the music whether it's loud or soft, I can dim the lights brighten them up, make them flash," he said.
The finished project makes it look easy, but he said that's not the case. He said it takes about 50 hours to program one song. He doesn't mind putting in the extra hours because what happens at the end of each season makes it all worth it.
Alexander has donation boxes outside of his home for the Guardian Angel Foundation, a non-profit that provides support to families and patients going through hospice.
"It's a very good cause, they help a lot of families when there is during the time of a death in the family," said Alexander.
The idea came after the crowds starting growing and Alexander said that's all the encouragement he needed.
"I've seen a full size charter bus out here, I've seen stretch limos a couple times. I'm just happy to be on their route and share a little joy with them," said Alexander.
You can see the lights on 7820 West Mullberry Jefferson Road in Mulberry.
