The winter holidays are not complete without a good light show to evoke holiday joy.

Those who tuned in on Dec. 2 to ABC’s “Christmas Light Fight,” will be familiar with Kennesaw’s Light of Joy. The light show, on 1510 Ben King Road Northwest, was a contestant on the show. Although it was not the winner, it is the largest residential Christmas light display in the state with over 600,000 lights, according to spokesman Richard B. Taylor.
