MULBERRY, Ind. (WLFI)—Scott Alexander has been putting up Christmas lights at his house for 26 years now. Something that was once a hobby, has become a local phenomenon. Alexander says he starts prepping the lights in October. This year, his light show features over 50 thousand individual lights.

He also has the lights synced to his own radio station at 107.3 FM. Many people stop by to see the lights on a regular basis while on their way through town.

The family accepts donations that go directly to the Guardian of the Angels Foundation. Alexander said this is something he's enjoyed doing for decades.

"Started out just as a hobby I wanted to do to begin with just a little at a time and it's just gradually grown and six years ago I went with computerized with it so that's when it really started expanding." 

Alexander said spreading cheer to the community is a big piece of the lights for he and his family. 

"A lot of people love them, I know there's a lot of people especially coming out of Lafayette, a few of them said it's their favorite show they like to come out and see them and it's become family tradition for a lot of people so I'm glad I can spread a little cheer with that."

Alexander says he looks for new ways to incorporate designs and technology each year. He says he switched over to LED lights because his electric bill reached nearly 400 dollars a month in the past.
