STERLING -- The Sterling Fire Department's Christmas spirit is contagious with the lights and music and funny antics of the firefighters.

This year's light and laughter display included a skit of sorts where the firefighters are in a staff meeting when the chief announces to everyone that Santa is expected to arrive the next morning. The staff suddenly erupts in excitement akin to the seasonal movie of an adult-size elf excited with the prospect of seeing the jolly ole' elf himself. 

The staged staff meeting moves to a techno-display of lights and sound as only a fire department can provide with flashing lights synced to "Santa Claus is Coming to Town," no coincidence with the "staff meeting," and other favorites of the season.
