Well, it's Monday. A cold Monday for that matter. But before you get into your weekly routine of work, responsibilities and more work, how about looking at a list of things occurring in the Tulsa area Monday?
As always, follow KTUL.com for full-length coverage on larger stories occurring in the area, state and nation. The following events are just some of those happening Monday with updates posted throughout the morning as we send out crews and reporters to stories we're working on for our evening newscasts.
Christmas Lights: Head on over to Broken Arrow for their annual Rhema lights display. Visitors can see the displays at Rhema Baptist Church with two million lights and over 100,000 shimmering bulbs synchronized to Christmas music.
Muskogee: If Broken Arrow isn't your thing, then head to Muskogee's Garden of Lights showcase at Honor Heights Park. With more than 1,000,000 shimmering lights and 120 acres of trees, bushes and water areas decorated, you're bound to be in the Christmas season by the end of it.
