A teenager from Topsfield, Massachusetts, made headlines this week after he revealed his latest Christmas display.
“Every year, my goal is to go bigger with the display,” 19-year-old Henry Swenson told Faithwire. “The support and expectations is what pushes me to go bigger each year and it keeps me driving to continue to do the display.”
On Saturday night, Swenson instructed those gathered around his house to countdown from 10 before he turned on the mammoth display, illuminating the Orchard Lane home in roughly 20,000 lights, according to WCVB-TV.
The entire house is draped in red, green, white, and blue lights, with archways lining the driveway and candy canes and Christmas trees scattered throughout the yard, all casting a festive glow throughout the property.
“I want to impress people more than they are expecting,” the teen said. “And I believe I have done just that which this year’s display.”
When Swenson turned on the lights, those gathered outside were undoubtedly impressed. One man there for the reveal described the display as “unbelievable.”
The Massachusetts native said he’s always been into decorating for the holidays, but it was during the pandemic that he really kicked his Christmas spirit into high gear. When all was said and done, it took Swenson an entire month to complete this year’s lights.
“Christmas means a lot to me,” he said. “Not only is it my favorite holiday, but I love seeing people make memories with the light display with their kids. It’s a great time of the year to gather around family and enjoy the Christmas spirit.”
