Once Thanksgiving is over, it’s officially Christmas season – and instead of going Black Friday shopping, many Americans choose to stay home and get into the holiday spirit.
That’s exactly what Glenn Elvenholl, a husband and father from Colorado, was doing this Friday when something went terribly wrong.
Glenn was hanging up Christmas lights outside his family home when he fell off his ladder, fell onto the ground below, and ended up breaking his leg and dislocating his ankle.
Rescuers with the local fire department quickly arrived on the scene to handle Glenn’s injury and get him to the hospital where he could be properly treated.
Technically, their job should have ended there — but that’s not where they stopped.
A number of firefighters decided to stay behind after the incident and finish hanging up Glenn’s Christmas lights, since he likely wouldn’t be able to get back up on the ladder.
The firefighters said that putting up the lights was “the right thing to do,” especially for the children who were worried about their dad’s injuries.
Their act of kindness definitely encapsulates the holiday spirit! Hopefully, Glenn will be well again soon, and be home to enjoy the holiday season (and the Christmas lights!) with his family.
