The First Annual Holiday Decor Contest


Couldn’t we all use some extra cheer this year? Announcing the First Annual 2020 Holiday Decor Contest.


It’s simple, just sign up below, then do your annual thing (or level it up to be better than ever). Judging will be conducted on the evening of December 18. Our Holiday Decor Committee of neighbors will select the winners who will receive lots of oohs and ahhs, a yard sign stating the win, and a modest gift. We ask that participants leave decorations in place until January 1, 2021.


Registration: November 23 - December 17

Judging: December 18

Winners: December 19


Our categories will include:

  • Most Festive: When you look at this home you should think that this decor is “over the top.” This home should really load up on the lights; blow-up figures, yard ornaments, etc.

  • Most Traditional: This home should have an elegant theme that is clean and neat, not cluttered. It should have a consistent color theme such as white, red, green, or a combination of the three. It would remind you of an “old-fashioned” Christmas.

  • Kid’s Choice: Decorated with a theme or decorations that would appeal to children. Kids in our neighborhood can help the Committee make the final decision in this category.

  • Door Decoration: A well-lit (visible from the street) door. Creativity will be considered. Any of the above motifs can be used or create your own theme.

  • Window Decoration (indoor): Many of you do a fabulous tree that’s inside. Consider showcasing it, well-lit, in your street-facing window for consideration in this category.

  • Hannukah: Hannukiahs, blue & white lights, dreidels, latkes anyone? Hannukah week this year is early, Dec 10 thru December 18th, but if your decoration is not “edible”, consider entering and leaving it up a while longer!


Here's to a beautiful holiday neighborhood!
