Woman plants Christmas tree in pothole

El Paso News

Something residents of one Pennsylvania neighborhood wanted for Christmas was a gigantic pothole on their street fixed.

One creative woman harnessed the spirit of the holiday to draw attention to the situation. 

Marietta Spak placed a fake Christmas tree in the hole, ornaments, star and all. 

Spak said it was her attempt to keep drivers from hitting the hole. 

Later, someone added a Santa Claus, and another neighbor even posed for a picture with a watering can. 

The pothole has since been fixed. The Department of Public Works said it was aware of the issue, but crews backed up.
