Indiana Christmas trees


Talk about decking the halls.

An Indiana man has managed to cram 86 Christmas trees into his 1,400-square-foot home, Indianapolis TV station WRTV reported.

It started as a hobby more than 10 years ago, but has now turned into Brandon Smith's obsession.

"Christmas was a big German holiday for my family," Smith, 31, told "Good Morning America." "My parents always put up a pretty good display and I just have grown and expanded on it over the years."

Smith said many of his trees are donated.

They fill nearly every inch of his house. Some are even crammed in the bathroom.

Smith decorated this year's trees with an estimated 52,000 lights.

It takes him four weeks to set up each year's display, but he said he doesn't mind.

"We love Christmas," Smith said. "There’s no denying that."
