MAHOPAC, N.Y. - Louis Costa has been planning for a year and working hard to decorate his house and yard on Fairmont Road for Christmas in the most spectacular fashion possible. 

His mom, Nicole, said it all started when his grandfather passed away when Louis was younger, and he wanted to decorate so brightly that grandpa could see it from heaven. Since then, she says, it “became a sweet yearly tradition. Now my lawn is covered!”

Louis and his uncle, Todd Saccagno, built a Santa house and restored classic decorations and created musical trees to complete the holiday landscape.

The family invites Mahopac residents to drive by and check out the festive display.
