The Hathaway house is one of the most decorated homes in the Bangor area each Christmas. The family doesn't use hundreds of lights, they use thousands to decorate their house, garage, shrubs and trees. It's their small way of celebrating the holiday while also displaying their heartfelt gratitude to Eastern Maine Medical Center's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit or NICU.
"It's a lot of work and definitely a lot of love [to put up all the lights] but there's a reason behind what we're doing. We're collecting money for the NICU," explained Rick Hathaway.
