Arlington attorney David Kulesz's massive display features about 325,000 white lights -- strung on his house, lining the fence around his tennis court and hanging from the large trees in his yard.
The holiday wonderland stretching across Kulesz's property and part of that of his two adjoining neighbors requires 2 miles of extension cords, two electric meters and 40 timers. This year alone, Kulesz estimates that he worked for more than 150 hours, including 10 straight days of using a rented cherry-picker to reach the tops of his and his neighbors' trees.
Since 1999, it has also helped shine the light on Alzheimer's disease, to which he lost his mother in 2000. A sign in his yard asks those who like the display to make a gift to the North Central Texas Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, of which he is a past president.
He does 75 percent of the work himself. For the rest, he hires help.
The project begins the first weekend in October. During Thanksgiving week, he takes a vacation from his law practice and puts in 10-hour days on a 45-foot cherry-picker.
