Christmas lights going up around Rochester


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- With the brief stint of moderate temperatures this week, many people are getting out after their Thanksgiving meals and putting up Christmas lights.

Many homes around town are bearing their Christmas charm with either simple wreaths and bows, or the complete Nativity scenes and colored lights.

The relatively warmer weather from the holiday weekend drew residents out to their yards to show off their holiday spirit.

One gentleman we spoke with told us how long he has been setting up his elaborate Christmas scenes.

"About ten years now, yeah in college I lived with some buddies and we got some free lights and put them up the first year and I really enjoyed it and have just been doing it since," said Brandon Kuennen.

The mild weather for our area is not sticking around much longer.  Temperatures are predicted to severely drop by next weekend.

If you are looking to get your decorations up, you might want to consider heading outside Monday before some freezing temperatures settle in on Wednesday.
