This house in Chios decked out with 300,000 Christmas lights brings joy and cheer

This house in Chios is decked out in magic and splendour!

24-year-old Pantelis Klapas hung 300,000 Christmas lights to bring some happiness during an otherwise dark time.

His family home in Karfas, a small town on the island of Chios, is probably the most decked out house in Greece.

Coming from a large family, he has been lighting their home during the festive season for the past 10 years, adding more light decorations every year.

According to ERT, the 24-year-old starts decorating his house at the end of October.

Christmas lights have taken on unusual significance this year, with many people sharing  that putting up their lights has felt especially meaningful.

Klapas told ERT that decorating his house with Christmas lights is his way of taking part in the joyful news of the birth of Jesus Christ.

He also wanted to bring happiness and joy to young children, who with their parents pass through the area of ​​Karfas in the evening to admire it.

One thing is for sure, he defiantly put a smile on people’s faces during a troubled time.

He will soon remove the lights by himself which will take about a month to do, before operation “Christmas Decoration” starts again next autumn.
