St. Petersburg, Florida -- This weekend, you're probably getting ready for the holiday, whether it's shopping or decorating the house.

A St. Petersburg man takes his holiday display pretty seriously -- we're talking more than 600,000 lights!

Ted Kresge, 70, has been decorating for the past 34 years. He keeps 10 trailer loads of stuff in storage each year for the growing half-acre display.

The display, which will stay up through January 3, costs about $5,000 a month for the electricity.
