Every year, Dundee becomes very festive for the holidays. That includes lighting up all the trees in the downtown district as well as hosting Lights on Dundee.

This year, they shut down the streets leading into the downtown district.

Festivities included hayrack rides, photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, free hot chocolate, and more.

At the Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate's office in Dundee, kids could play "I Spy" while interacting with the Grinch.

It's not often you see for-profit companies launching grass-roots volunteering campaigns. 

Sure, you find the occasional business asking for donations for environmental projects or social justice campaigns, but sometimes it's hard to find a business whose campaigns focus on a wide variety of movements happening in their city.

Thankfully, Omaha is home to one of those programs: Commit 20. Commit 20 is a volunteer project led by Sun Valley Landscaping where volunteers are asked to commit 20 hours of their time to a local non-profit organization. 

The project started in 2014  when current general manage Ashly Neneman and her colleagues created "a way for Sun Valley Landscaping employees to become more involved in community volunteer projects,"

Don't you just love that wintry scent of pine or fir filling every corner of your living room? 

The aroma of your tannenbaum is one of the trademark characteristics of Christmas.

Sadly, though, Christmas trees have also been the source of heartbreak over the years: home-destroying fires, in some cases, have been caused by heat, trees and bad luck.The American Christmas Tree Association (yes, there is such a thing) estimates that yuletide trees cost $13 million annually in property damage.

So, in an effort to keep you safe, happy and Christmasy as your tree dries out, we've created a list of three different safety tips based on information we found from the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) and the American Christmas Tree Association (ACTA).

Every year, one giant Christmas tree has the honor of gracing the cavernous expanse of Dunham's Union Station. 

This year, the beautiful old train station is home to a 40-foot Colorado blue spruce that grew up on the not-so-mean streets of Ralston. Resident Rita Guenette took care of the tree for 40 years as it grew from a $1.49 seedling in 1975 to the proud patriarch of Union Station's Christmas celebration in 2015. 

Rita talked with the Omaha Herald a few weeks ago when the tree was transported to the station. She said she remembers her kids running and hopping over the tree when it was a seedling. 

“I fertilized it every year and it grew really nice," she told the Herald.

You scoff at the thought of welcoming an artificial tree into your home. It's lifeless, papery needles are like little slivers of yuletide tomfoolery, you say. 

You'd rather pack up the family Clark Griswold-style and head to the forest belting "O, Tannenbaum" at the top of your merry lungs. 

You want to feel the weathered handle of an axe in your hands and the jolt the old girl gives you the moment it sinks its stubborn blade into the backside of an Eastern Red cedar. Or, you prefer the high-pitched wail of a chainsaw thrashing it's way through the sweet-smelling pine that will soon grace your home. 

 

You sir or ma'am, are a Christmas lumberjack, born and bred for the moment when that deep green beauty of a tree makes its graceful fall onto

This weekend's Berkshire-Hathaway shareholder's meeting will attract thousands of people to Omaha, but their interests won't solely be focused on what's happening at CenturyLink Center.

Hundreds of visitors will pay homage to investment wizard Warren Buffett by traveling to the billionaire's Omaha home.

We're just warning you – you're going to be surprised the first time you see Warren Buffett's house. You're aren't going to believe your eyes. It's that different.

 

 

What you may not know is that, of all the mansionish sprawl which encapsulates the homes of America's most famous businessmen, Warren Buffett has managed to remain untouched and unspoiled by the pressure to express wealth through gaudy properties as big as neighborhoods
