World Record for Christmas Lights goes to… a barrister.

Barrister Claims Guiness Records for Christmas Lights

A barrister in Canberra has made global headlines after switching on more than half a million Christmas lights to reclaim a Guinness World Record. A total of 502,165 lights are illuminating David Richards’ home in Forrest, smashing the world record for the most lights on a residential property.

Richards and his family originally won the title in 2011 with a 331,038-bulb effort. However, in 2012, they were outshone by a New York home that strung up a staggering 346,283 lights.

Anyone can visit the home to see the lights after dark until 26 December at 3 Tennyson Crescent, Forrest. Entry is via a gold coin donation.
