With the holidays fast approaching, Mohegan Sun is getting all decked out!

Executive pastry chef Lynn Mansel and his staff have worked for the last couple of days to put together a life-sized gingerbread house. But they didn't do it alone! On Monday, elementary school students from the Murphy School in Montville got their hands dirty to help put the finishing touches on the house.

FOX 61 photojournalist Jeff Langan went to Mohegan Sun to watch the excitement, which you can see in the video above.
