“Our usual tradition is that we will start setting up for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving,” Sandra Elvenholl of Jefferson County, Colorado, told KUSA in November 2017. As a result, her husband, Glenn, volunteered to hang the outside Christmas lights up, with a little help from their eight-year-old son.
