Illinois State Capitol's Dome decorated for holidays

The Statehouse is all set for the holidays!

Every year, the Illinois State Capitol's Dome is decked out in string lights for Christmas.

The lights have been a tradition since 1900.

Back in 2015, holiday lights almost were not a reality because of the budget crisis.

But, unions ended up footing the bill.

Since then, the Secretary of State's Office has funded the light display.
