Our Story
Who We Are

If You Can Dream It, We Can Build It!

Eric Johannessen (Creative Director/Owner and “Head Elf”) loves three things more than anything in this world – his family, creating lifetime memories, and Christmas! Because he wanted to create lifetime memories for his young children, he started decorating his home in Winter Park for Christmas starting in 2011. Prompted by his desire to go bigger and bigger each year, his home decorations blew up into a display so big and bright that in 2016 it went national and aired on ABC’s, “The Great Christmas Light Fight”. Today Eric and his family host over 25,000 visitors to his home each season, making it one of the biggest and best light displays in Central Florida.

Taking his passion for Christmas lights to the community was a natural progression. Starting with a charitable house display, Johannessen Lights has blossomed to hundreds of homes, HOA’s, businesses and communities across Central Florida.

Eric Johannessen and his design team are not your ordinary holiday light installers. They are passionate about creating enchanting and awe-inspiring holiday lighting installations. Demanding only the best, brightest and most creative products available, Johannessen Lights transforms the everyday into extraordinary winter wonderlands.
