Paul and Deborah Birt's home east of St. Marys on County Road 33A features more the 40,000 Christmas lights highlighting the handcrafted wooden figures, including a full nativity scene with animals and angels and a skyline of Bethlehem in the background. The lights will shine until New Year's Day when the family gets busy taking down and storing the display until next Halloween when it all starts again.
