A 30-year Christmas tradition is lighting up a downtown home again

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A 30-year Christmas tradition is lighting up a Colorado Springs home again this year when John and Jo Knull throw the switch on the holiday displays that fill their yard.

The Knulls started with a lighted, rotating Christmas tree and added a few other displays ever year until four years ago, when they ran out of room for anything more.

Jo Knull tells The Gazette of Colorado Springs that stopping to see the display has become a tradition for three generations of some local families.

John Knull says some repeat visitors call it "the Christmas House." The Knulls are both 74. They turn on the display at 5 p.m. the Saturday after Thanksgiving every year and light it nightly through New Year's Day.
