The Christmas ornaments started appearing on trees three years ago.

They start showing up the first week of December and can be seen until February when they are taken down.

Many residents of the Judas Creek subdivision say they have no idea who is putting them up, but they do enjoy looking at them while driving through.

A Christmas fairy

There are a small few who claim they do know who is behind this festive gesture.

Judas Creek resident Audrey Bell says trying to figure out who is behind it has been part of the holiday cheer.

"It's been a guessing game for a few years now. It is much fun," she said.

Patricia Phillips Kolachkosky says she too is curious to know who is hanging the ornaments.

"Not sure who is hanging them. It was done last year too. It's pretty to look at."

Susan Walton flat out told us who she thinks it is.

"It's a Christmas fairy."
