"Here's what you get when you take a 2-acre lakeside property, six piers, two hy-dry buildings, an office building, 42 trees, 320 extension cords of all sizes and lengths, 600 feet of fence, 26 deer, 19 angles, five boats, an elf and cover them with 970,000 holiday lights," he said in an e-mail, joking that it was OK to say there was "something wrong" with him.

Lewis said he started decorating the Florida marina about 15 years ago and it gets a little bigger each year.
