One Pennsylvania town found a solution to deal with their major pothole problem, a Christmas tree.  

One woman stuck a Christmas tree, decorated with ornaments, inside the large hole.

“I was upstairs in the attic and I was looking for more Christmas decorations and I came upon the tree. I thought that would look nice in the hole,” said Marietta Spak.

One resident eventually put Santa Claus in the hole, and another neighbor stopped to water the tree.

Gary Muchler, who has lived in the town for more than 60 years, said he and other neighbors are showing their frustrations.

The WIlkes-Barre Department of Public Works got wind of the decorations and say they plan on fixing the hole within a day or so.
