RALEIGH, N.C. – A North Carolina woman’s Christmas light display will blow your mind – and she also hopes it raises money for lupus research.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported that the light display at 1413 Whittington Road in Raleigh belongs to 57-year-old Robin Reid.

Reid has been using the Christmas light display to spread holiday cheer for years. And she’s amassed hundreds of lights. She even had an electrician add electrical circuits to suit the ever-growing light display.

Reid was diagnosed with lupus six years ago, according to the paper. Now, she is hoping the light display will raise money for the North Carolina chapter of the Lupus Foundation of America, which supports research of the disease.
