Check out this cool Christmas light display, and no, it's not at a theme park... It's on someone's house!

Thousands of light bulbs and decorations cover the roof, garden, and front of the house in Wiltshire.

The man who owns the house, Alex Goodhind, said he took a whole month off work to put up the display, but he also got a helping hand from his neighbours.

Mr Goodhind's impressive collection of Christmas lights is thought to be worth 30,000, and last year he said it cost a whopping 700 to run them!

But the whole idea is to raise money for charity. Last year Mr Goodhind raised 2,000, and he's hoping visitors who stop by to admire the lights will donate money again this year.
