Harrison man’s holiday lights tradition dates back 4 decades

Posted: Updated:
HARRISON -

A Harrison man is continuing his tradition of taking his holiday display above and beyond this year.

Roy Aletti has been stringing the lights on his house on Parsons Street for more than 40 years. 

Both kids and adults stopped by the house to get a look at the spectacular decorations.

"Nowadays everything is LED, cyber this, that," Aletti says. "You look at this and it's almost like a 1930s, ‘40s Christmas. And some of these decorations go back to the late ‘30s."

Aletti says you can even expect to see Santa at the house on certain days.
