Cairo Family Lights up their Community

Posted: Updated:

A Cairo family draws in a crowd and brightens the holiday with their Christmas light display, and most of their lights are all hand made.

Chad Osburn started a tradition of adding one new item each year since 1991. Osburn said, "I'm running out of room now. I need to figure out what I'm going to do next."

Some of his ideas come from his granddaughter, who has been his inspiration recently. Each year Osburn chooses a unique topic or looks into what's trending in his granddaughter's world. For 2013 he chose to make a "Monster High" painting.

"It takes three days, but we cheat and start in October. We always like to have enough for the first week of December because that's when Cairo has a celebration."

Some of the crafts take a bit of trial an error. He uses household items such as refrigerator parts and riding mowers to make electronic displays.
