Orlando couple decorates home with Christmas lights to honor COVID-19 victims for 2nd year

ORLANDO, Fla. — An Orlando couple has decorated their Lake Como home with more than half a million Christmas lights to honor those who lost their lives to COVID-19.

As we start to see the light at the end of the tunnel for the pandemic, they want to make sure we never forget the lives lost from the virus.


Last holiday season, David and Frank Nubar decorated their home at 2811 Clemwood Street with more than 200,000 lights. Each one represented a life lost to COVID-19. They’re bringing it back this year.
