lightsRED OAK, IA – For the past 40 years an Iowa man has gone above and beyond when it comes to decorating for Christmas. This year, Jack Baird strung 10,000 lights on his farmhouse.

He starts October first, and with the help of family and friends gets them all hung. Baird says he does it because he didn’t have the lavish decorations growing up and wants to make the season brighter for kids.
