MORRISTOWN, N.J., Dec. 17 (UPI) -- A New Jersey man who has been creating elaborate Christmas displays for 28 years said this year's display outside his home includes 75,000 lights.

Mike Antreassian, 70, of Rockaway Township in Morris County, said people have already come to see his lights from across the state and he is expecting hundreds more in coming days, NJ.com reported Monday.

Antreassian said his display involves 75,000 bulbs powered by 35,000 watts of electricity.

The homeowner said volunteers come to his home to play Santa for visiting children and the display involves a wooden desk where children can write their letters to the jolly old elf.
