Tree Tradition

Mark Fehribach sets up a Christmas tree light decoration in the front yard of his Jasper home on Tuesday. Mark and his wife, Pat, have been putting up the tree for more than 35 years. "It's a tradition," Mark said. "This has been our thing now for a long time. As long as I'm physically able, I would never not put it up."
