LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - You’ve probably noticed more Christmas lights going up in your neighborhood.

If you live in Elsie, you certainly can’t miss one couple who goes all-out to spread cheer in their community.

You’d never think you’d have Mr. and Mrs. Claus living down the road, but after more than 40 years of setting up a drive-through light display in Elsie, Jill and Harry Huntoon deserve the title.

Jill Huntoon hand-paints every frosty decoration and Harry Huntoon is in charge of getting all the lights set up. They said it’s a community effort that the neighbors help out with.

The couple change the theme every year and this year, Frosty has the spotlight. The drive-through light show features nearly 60,000 lights.

The Huntoons said the effort is always worth it.

Every drive through the light show ends with home-made cookies.

If you’d like to see Huntoons’ light display, they are located on North Saint Clair Road in Elsie.
