Randy Fletcher continues his holiday tradition of lighting the Magic Tree. The tree can be seen at 303 Hickam Drive until Jan. 6.

COLUMBIA  — Randy Fletcher, also known as Will Treelighter, has put lights on the magic tree for 15 years. The tree at 303 Hickam Drive is lit from 5 to 11 p.m. every night beginning on the night before Thanksgiving and going through Jan. 6. 

It takes Fletcher 120 hours to set up the 75,000 lights and he estimates the electricity costs amount to $10 a night. He said the costs are worth the positive feedback he receives.
