Bolivar County is lighting up in the evenings for the holidays.

From Snoopy blowups to blinking Christmas trees, the décor throughout the county glows bright.

Rayburn Mosley and his wife Jean have one of the most loved houses in Cleveland with lights decorating both the front and the backyard.

Mosley, who is 76-years-old and retired, had a little more difficulty than usual this year putting up the lights due to a pinched nerve, but he had one large reason for continuing with his grand decorations.

"It's just for the children. The children around town and people I don’t even know stop and ask me if I'm going to decorate this year. They tell me their kids always want to come by and see them," said Mosley.

Mosley estimated that he has close to 600 lights on each of his trees in his front yard but said there was no way of knowing how many lights he has total.

He also decorated his backyard by putting six Christmas trees around the patio and putting lights on his shed.

"My wife laughed at me about that but I told her I can't see the lights in the front yard and I can see these from the den.

Mosley said he would continue to decorate his home each year for the children around Cleveland to come see and enjoy during the holidays.

His lights may be viewed at 1206 Deering in Cleveland.
