The Phifers have close to a million and a half lights at 9604 and 9606 Asbury Court.

Bobby and Bobbie Phifer live at 9604 Asbury Court and have been lighting up for 13 years.

Bobby has been decorating his mother's house at 9606 Asbury since he was a child. Rose Phifer passed away last year, but Bobby continues to light up both houses in his mother's memory.

Both houses include many old-fashioned displays, snowmen, blowmolds, and a doll room. The doll room has been completely revamped and has many new additions this year.

Visitors are invited to get out and walk around to get a close look at the display.

The family is often out with hot chocolate for sale. Make sure to make a donation to keep the tradition going.

The electric bill runs an additional $1,200 per house for the season.

The rain has slowed them down this year, but they will light up at 6 p.m. Thanksgiving night and run through New Year's.

The doll house is revamped and new this year.

Social media: The Phifers are on Facebook at A Phifer Christmas.

Hours: 5:15-10 p.m. Sundays-Thursdays and 5:15 p.m.-midnight Fridays-Saturdays
