For years, there's a house in Oneonta on Tilly Avenue that people flock to every year during the holiday season...John Hayen's house.  The reason is, every year, he out does himself with his lighting and holiday decor!  Here's how it has progressed...

In 2012 he had 10,000 lights on the house and property
2013: 12,000
2014, 2015, 2016: 15,000
2017: 30,000 (big jump!)
and now, in 2018, John has 32,000 lights!!!

Our family has made it a family tradition to drive around Oneonta and view holiday lights every Christmas Eve and John's house is the final viewing since it's the most outrageous.  The video below doesn't do it justice but can give you an idea of how much is going on at his house.  You should really view it in person to get the full experience of music, animated figures, and crazy amount of lights! If there's ever an Oneonta electrical grid brown-out during the holiday season, we all know who to blame!
