Workers get in holiday spirit decorating Union Station Christmas Tree

Omaha’s Christmas Tree stands at approximately 37-feet high and will take three days to decorate in lights and puppy-dog size ornaments.

With the help of about six workers, they will inspect each ornament, repair any damaged ones and begin putting lights strand-by-strand throughout this tree all in preparation for the Christmas Tree lighting on November 23, 2012.

The tree is suspended from the ceiling where it is held by a sturdy metal cable and its trunk is secured in a water-filled horse trough all in the center of The Durham Museum within Omaha’s Union Station.

I was able to stop by and learn how this tree gets decorated year after year and even placed an ornament on the tree. See if you can spot it during the lighting ceremony.
