We’ve been telling you about this house in Lockport for a few years now. But – this story gets even better!

Such a wonderful thing to read – particularly around this time of year.

Paul Crego has been giving people an amazing experience of dancing lights each Christmas for years now. He lights his house up and dazzles folks who drive by day in and day out. The lights are stunning and certainly help put people in the holiday spirit.

Crego received a special message that takes it all to the next level. He posted the touching remarks.

“I just got this message: Hi Paul my name is Erin, today my family and I came to look at your beautiful Christmas lights.
I really wanted to let you know why this meant so very much to myself and my family!
My 9-year-old son is severely colorblind. Today we were surprised at school when my son and a classmate of his were given a special gift… glasses that allow them to see color! Our community and school raised money and purchased these glasses for the boys! Today my son was able to see color for the first time! I couldn’t think of a better place to show him exactly how beautiful Christmas light are. He was amazed when we pulled up to your house tonight. It was truly a magical moment and one we will NEVER forget!!
Thank you so much for the joy you bring to so many that come to see your beautiful Christmas lights. This was an experience we will never forget and one i am sure he will want to visit year after year!!!
Merry Christmas!!!”


How amazing is that! Something many of us take for granted and now this little boy and a classmate were given such a special gift.
