For 19 years, a California man has decorated his home for Christmas and has invited community members to visit. The holiday display is a tribute to a daughter he lost in a plane crash.
Bob Taylor oldest daughter died in the plane crash.
“She loved Christmas,” Taylor told KRON. ” I mean, that was her favorite time of the year and she loved to decorate.”
Taylor said his two other daughters got the idea to decorate the home in their sister’s honor. What began as a small tribute became something bigger.
The family’s Christmas display is extensive and takes more than three months to perfect, KRON reported.
“I just tell everybody that I want it to be bright enough that she can see it from heaven,” Taylor told KRON.
