A grandmother named Betty-Ann Jones, who lives in Pontardawe, Wales, has spent forty years and over $38,000 amassing a collection of over-the-top Christmas decorations. She has more than 2,000 pieces, to be exact, and it’s fabulous.
A YouTube video by Caters Clips gives us a chance to watch Jones living her best elf-like life.
But it’s not all for fun and giggles. Jones raises some serious cash for charities, too. She’s raised over $93,000 in five years, and part of the money goes to buy blankets and food for the homeless.
“As long as I am happy and I make other people happy. That is my aim in life.”
When we grow up we want to be just like Betty-Ann.

People felt they could relate.
Now we feel a little better about our own Christmas stash.
