Neighbors help man after Christmas lights hit by tornado

PAINCOURTVILLE, La. (AP) — Neighbors of a Paincourtville man whose house was struck by a tornado earlier this year, destroying his Christmas decorations, are helping him celebrate the holiday spirit.

WAFB-TV reports ( ) that neighbors came out Sunday to help decorate Ray Daigle’s house for the holidays.

Daigle’s Christmas tradition started more than a decade ago and included more than two million lights. It was complete with trains and a working ferris wheel, making it the house to see in Assumption Parish.

Dozens of people came together this year to decorate six trees in the front yard with ornaments and lights.

Daigle says the assistance means a lot because it shows the “community cares.”
