New Pal residence lighting it up for Christmas

Thanks to the efforts of a local resident, there is a little more Christmas cheer this season in New Palestine.

 

For Kayla Reddington, her love of lights has turned into a full-blown Christmas lights and music show at her house.


“We decided to take a chance and attempt to do the lights with music this year. My house was in perfect placement, and we decided we would love to spread cheer in New Pal and go all out,” Reddington said.


Reddington told Giant FM multiple people worked around the clock to help get her house ready, in addition to working their regular jobs for Heffernan’s Home Services.


For Reddington, her love affair with Christmas lights goes back to her childhood.


“I remember being a kid and going to a light show and watching it over and over. I want kids to remember this one as well and for it to be a memory for their Christmas,” she told Giant FM.


The house, located at 2097 South Woodgrove Way, New Palestine, will feature the lights and music Monday through Thursdays from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 6 p.m. until 11 p.m. Those attending can turn their radio on to 90.3 to enjoy the music.


Reddington tells Giant FM in addition to the lights and music, she is also looking to help out the homeless and is asking anyone who comes out to bring coats, blankets, hats and gloves and put them in the totes on her porch.


“We hope people see this and feel happiness. Christmas is a hard time for some, and we figure what better way to brighten their day than with thousands of lights on one house,” Reddington told Giant FM.
