Edmundo Rombeiro and his family have been putting together this Christmas house to for the past 24 years, and every year it gets bigger.

There are about 140,000 lights as well as countless figurines, dioramas, and decorations adorning the front and side yards, walls, and roof of the Rombeiro house. Apparently they start setting the whole thing up in August.
