Mystery Christmas tree in Langlade County

LANGLADE COUNTY (WAOW) - Every year, someone mysteriously decorates a tree along Highway 45 near Elcho in Langlade County.

Even though the decorating has happened each Christmas season for more than a decade, the community isn't sure who is behind it.

"Everyone wonders every year about who decorates it," said Kelvin Wagner of Antigo. "Everybody thinks they know, but they don't know who."

Some people think it's someone who enjoys the festive fun.

"It's probably someone who really likes Christmas," said Brett Jensen of Elcho.

While no one seems to know who is behind the red poinsettia, bright tinsel and angel decorations on the tree, no one is complaining.

"It makes me happy inside," said Marion Morse of Elcho. "When I look at it, I get happy inside because it's someone's thought to the world."

The secret behind the Elcho tree is safe this year, but perhaps the mystery is the real magic.
