DEMAREST - A teenager from Bergen County has created quite the Christmas display and says it is all in honor of his mother.

Fifteen-year-old Daniel Eisenberg of Demarest has a display with more than 100,000 Christmas lights. The display on Evergreen Place is set to music.

Eisenberg says it takes him 15 hours to program just one minute of a song.

"I made eight songs this year. A year ago I had no idea how to do this, but my mentor taught me how to do it."

The teen created the display in honor of his mother Lena, who died five years ago from a heart attack.

"She loved Christmas," he says. "She used to decorate the house every year."

Eisenberg is taking donations to view the display. Half of the money will go towards next year’s display and the other half will be donated to the American Heart Associated in memory of his mother.
