Before you judge your neighbor for keeping up those Christmas lights thru the new year. It might be part of a tradition in Colorado for the last 118 years. Keeping lights up has been part of the Colorado tradition for National Western Stock Show in Denver to welcome visitors and to keep the city looking festive in January. (Now after the 21st judge away)

The 118th annual National Western Stock Show opens Saturday, Jan. 6, and continues through Sunday, Jan. 21, at the National Western Complex and Denver Coliseum. Here are more details to plan your visit: nationalwestern.com
