TINLEY PARK -- One Illinois family knows all about paying high electric bills. Each year, they put on a dazzling light display at their home.

The stunning display costs an additional $1,600 on their electric bill. It includes about 100,000 lights with over a mile of extension cords.

It's one of 20-displays around the country up for ABC's Christmas Light Contest. The winner gets $50,000, so this homeowner says, if he wins that, he'll pay the bill and it will help for years to come!
