Groveton woman says Easter yard decorations are here to stay

GROVETON, TX (KTRE) -

One East Texas woman is spreading some holiday cheer through yard decorations. Mary Lankford of Groveton has been decorating her yard every Easter holiday in an effort to spread some holiday cheer.

Easter is one of Lankford's favorite holidays and she even has an Easter tree. She says she has been decorating for the holiday for years.

The Physical Education teacher for the Groveton Independent School District says children love coming by her house and taking pictures with her decorations.

"Everybody knows this is my house. Everybody knows that it is going to come out and stay out. The kids will come and talk about it and ask about it, and tell me which one they like, "said Lankford.

Lankford's favorite new item this year is the addition of Easter crosses.  She also says she is in the middle of moving to a new house, but promises that people will still be able to see her decorations every year.
