ELCHO - An Elcho couple's Christmas tradition now serves as a tradition for many others in the Northwoods.
Carl and Lissa Bloechl spent only a week setting up thanks to the stretch of warm weather early in the season.
It's common for the couple to drop everything to take an emergency EMT call which adds time to decorating.
They say they can't stop the display though!
"We get people from Rhinelander or Antigo or people that we know, even from outlying areas! They'll say 'Do you have the lights up yet, we want to see them!" Then we have to scramble and beat the weather," says Carl Bloechl.
The couple spends about $300 adding new items to their display every year, such as the new nativity scene Carl built.
This is the fifth year the couple has decorated their apartment complex.

Republicans have criticized Evers's decision not to revoke the license of a Middleton middle school teacher in 2014 fired for viewing emails that included images of naked women. An arbitrator found no students were in the classroom when the teacher saw the emails.
