Phoenix home to be featured on ABC’s ‘Great Christmas Light Fight’

PHOENIX — With the tryptophan fully out of everyone’s system, it’s time to shift our focus toward bright lights and something a bit more jolly.

ABC’s “Great Christmas Light Fight” takes a look at 24 homes that go above and beyond with the Christmas decorations. The fourth season will premiere on Dec. 5, and a Phoenix house will be featured this year on the show.

Kim Taylor’s Ahwatukee Foothills house fits the description of going above and beyond with many light figures in the front yard, including multiple Santas, Olaf from Disney’s ‘Frozen’ and even a lit-up Minion. Taylor’s family spends months every year placing all the decorations around his home.

Taylor has been getting his home in the holiday spirit for years now and it’s not the first time they’ve been in the spotlight.

His decorations were a crime scene in 2014 when a car drove through his yard and caused thousands of dollars in damage days before Christmas.

After starting a social media campaign to find a car that fit the description, a stranger who did not know the family personally identified the car and followed it to a home, which led to the suspect being arrested.

The winner of the competition receives a cash prize of $50,000 and the highly-coveted Light Fight Trophy. “Great Christmas Light Fight” is co-hosted by Taniya Nayak and Carter Oosterhouse.

Each contestant’s house is judged on three categories: use of lights, overall design and Christmas spirit.
