NOW: Pleasant Prairie brings back ’Twelfth Night’ Christmas tree bonfire

PLEASANT PRAIRIE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Neighbors and friends in Pleasant Prairie gathered Monday night to revive an old holiday tradition.

The village is bringing back their "Twelfth Night" tree burning ceremony. 

The fun started at 6 p.m. at the RecPlex Pavilion. It was a chance to sing songs, share some holiday treats and hot chocolate while getting rid of dried-up Christmas trees. 

People say they're happy to have the event back.

"The village decided we wanted to kind of create a more community event and kind of regrow or bring back that Twelfth Night event," said Pleasant Prairie Fire Chief Kraig Roepke. 

The event began in 1980 and had its first run come to an end in 1993. The hope is to have the event back next year. 

It's also helping to raise funds for the renovation of the Dublin School.
