Lots of people decorate their homes with Christmas lights and displays this time of year, but few are as elaborate as one in Plymouth County on Highway 3 seven miles west of Le Mars.

The Scheitler family has been hosting “Christmas Acres” for 22 years.

It’s a display of 150-thousand lights and around 13-hundred plastic figurines and sculptures.
Rob Scheitler says his favorite part is interacting with all the people who come by to see his display:

OC……candy canes. :14

More and more people visit Christmas Acres each year.
A 16-foot-tall inflatable Santa is one of the more popular decorations.

OC…………..got to say ;09

The attraction often draws tour buses and church groups.
Visitors to Christmas Acres can make donations – with all of the money raised going to local charity.
