TULSA, Okla. - Most of your holiday lights and trees are up by now, but, the Tulsa County Clerk's office has decided to decorate a little differently this year.

Michael Willis, Tulsa's County Clerk, decided to do more with a tree growing outside the courthouse.

Employees decided to do much more than just put up ornaments.

Willis said they started putting up hats and gloves right in time for the colder weather to arrive.

“So we started with the whole idea of bringing some ornaments… then people got a little more creative and decided you know, it's going to get cold we might have people that need a hat like this that might be walking by this tree," said Willis.

The tree is located by the east entrance on Denver Ave.
