YORK TOWNSHIP, Pa.--

Don Webb has been decorating his property for 25 years. He said he goes three weeks of 8-10 hour days to get all the lights up and ready.

"It's up there on top of the hill. You can't miss it," he said.

Webb doesn't know exactly how many lights he has, but he said it is tens of thousands.

It all started when he wanted to create memories for his son Seth. Seth died this year, and Webb considered not doing it anymore. His wife gave him a pep talk, and he continued the tradition.

"To see the kids, the little kids their eyes twinkle and the stories," he said.

He does not charge any fee, but food and money donations are accepted. Webb gives all that to the Emanuel Food Kitchen.

The light display runs through the first week of January. Webb said if any children have letters for Santa they can be dropped at the mailbox along the display route.
