    Spirit of Christmas


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     RSO34 photographed an elaborately decorated home in Queens, New York, by retired firefighter Kevin Lynch. He says Lynch has been putting together these stunning Christmas displays at his home for the past 17 years, adding more decorations to the display each year. 'Most years it takes Kevin six to eight weeks. However, this year he was selected to be on ABC's Christmas Light Wars show and they gave him only 21 days to complete it. He spent a total of 240 hours over those past 21 days,' he said. ' I was amazed at the display including the total amount of lights and figurines. Plus, Kevin plays Christmas music outdoors.'

    Outdone yourself with Christmas lights this year or know someone who has? We want to see the most stunning and outrageous displays out there!
