SLIDESHOW: 85,000 Christmas lights adorn trio of Federal Way homes
Each year, Kevin and Pam Houck decorate their home at 32540 42nd Place SW in Federal Way with up to 45,000 lights. Kevin Houck even decorates his neighbors' houses, with their blessing, bringing the grand total to almost 85,000 lights.
Over the past 19 years the Houcks have lived in their house, the setup has grown a little larger. Installation begins around mid-October, and they turn on the lights on the first Friday in December. The lights will stay on through New Year's Day. Pam Houck said the electric bill — which triples in December — is worth every penny.
