This house in Lincoln Estates displays a yard full of Christmas decorations. There's music and musical lights and also animated figures, garland and plenty of other kinds of lights. The home, located at 921 SE 20th St. in Lincoln Estates, is owned by Chiquitta and Eliza Henderson, who have been there for 30 years. They started decorating their yard and home 13 years ago and have added to the decor each year, sometimes by buying items at the end of the Christmas season and also at other times. Chiquitta Henderson said this year, it took them about four days to complete the project by working half a day at a time. She said the tradition each year is to have everything up and ready for Thanksgiving night. Lights go on at about 5:30 p.m. and stay on until 9 p.m. each day. The display comes down sometime after New Year's Day.
