David Richards leads the Canberra, Australia family of five. Joining in the project are wife Janean, and children Aidan, Caitlin, and Madelyn.

As for the cost “It’s about another $2,500 per month for the month of December in power” Richards pointed out.
Richard’s family held the record in 2011 with just over 300,000 lights but a family in LaGrangeville, NY took over last year when they displayed 346,283 lights.
