In a world of over-rated hype, hustle & bustle, and unwanted noise and distractions -- this may very well be the coolest thing you'll see in Minnesota this Christmas.

Two Ely, Minnesota men, Joe Bianco and Cam Regan, built a giant Christmas Carousel on Burntside Lake in Northern Minnesota (and it's amazing).

The carousel comes complete with ice luminaries, Christmas figures, and a trolling motor to keep the whole thing spinning.

Merry Christmas!
