There's nothing like breaking a world record to get people in the holiday spirit. Janean and David Richards have recently broken the world record for most lights on a residential property. This clever Australian couple has covered their home is Christmas lights from tip to tail, and have donated all of the money they've raised in the process to the 'Sids and Kids' charity (definitely a worthy cause).

This phenomenally lit home features 502,165 lights in total. Essentially, the Richards have created a winter wonderland on steroids. Rows of lights cover the home, surrounding trees, and just about everything else on their property. This delightful fundraising display will be left up until boxing day, ensuring that everyone in the area has time to come and check it out in person.
