Sharing another ornament donated to our Home for the Holidays tree by a WCCO viewer! "This ornament is special to me as I was a sled dog racer (musher) in the 1970’s and 1980’s. I now watch the 1049 mile Iditarod Race in Alaska every year online. I also like where this ornament is going as I am also a US Navy Veteran."

Final score of the #Vikings
game at Seattle. What was the defining moment of the game?
Perfect timing! We received this beautiful handmade Vikings ornament for WCCO's Home for the Holidays community tree on Monday ahead of the Vikings game at Seattle. Let's hope it brings us luck! 🏈
Sign of a Vikings victory? Our Liz Collin saw this along 94 around Northfield, Wisconsin tonight. (Turns out it’s an aquaponics farm doing some cool stuff with food, but still, we'll take it as a sign from above!)
Whereas, Mark Rosen will forever be part of the fabric of WCCO, and whereas he’s kicking off his last month on our air with full coverage of the Vikings’ game in Seattle ... Now, therefore, we clap Mark on the back with love and pride as Gov. Mark Dayton declares December 10, 2018 Mark Rosen Day in the state of Minnesota!

Our Weather Watcher Dan Shield snapped this festive shot of the hoarfrost in Shafer, Minnesota this morning. Looking chilly but looking beautiful! Thanks for sharing, Dan!
The man behind Skyrock Farm in Hamel has become a keeper of carousel history. Organs, a music wagon, a carnival donkey, a mechanical gorilla and hundreds of mini carousels are just some of the treasures you'll find on the farm. 🎠
Over 35 years, a holiday display in White Bear Lake has grown to include between 200,000 and 300,000 lights. The display will shine until the second week of January, but this will be the last year to witness it. See it while you still can on West Bald Eagle Boulevard! 🎄❄
Happy holidays from the annual WCCO holiday party, where colleagues toasted Mark Rosen as he gets ready for his retirement from channel 4 after 50 years on the air!

Mark Rosen wanted to send this message to WCCO viewers: "My original plan was to retire from WCCO-TV in April following the Final Four. I am moving that date up to Jan. 10. There are no words to express the appreciation for the outpouring of support my family has received during this difficult time. “I grew up here, always lived here, we raised our kids here and will retire here. I will have much more to add as the finish line approaches on channel 4. "In the meantime, I will cherish every remaining broadcast."
This month, we’re collecting your ornaments to help bring awareness and support to homeless veterans in our community. (See bio link for more info.) Check out these adorable submissions from 11-year-old Weston and 9-year-old Destiny from Frederic, Wisconsin, and swipe to see their letter to veterans!
Look who it is! Tom Brady’s cousin @kimjohnsonwcco
! (No really, they’re related! That’s the only reason she wasn’t dressed in purple and gold yesterday, she claims.)
And that's the game. The Vikings lose to the Patriots 24-10.
Happy Hanukkah from all of us here at WCCO. 🕯
President George H.W. Bush has died at 94. Mr. Bush was the patriarch of a modern-day political dynasty and dedicated his life to the United States — serving as a World War II pilot, a Texas congressman and the head of the CIA before entering the White House.
