Deck that house for chance to win our 'Spirit of Christmas' contest

Is your house the envy of your neighbors each Christmas?

Do you have plans to turn it into a seasonal spectacle?

Then we invite you to enter The Valley Breeze "Spirit of Christmas" contest during the upcoming holiday season.

If you think your house is among the best-decorated homes in the Blackstone Valley, or even if you just think it's pretty great and should be included on a list of homes for area residents to visit, you are more than welcome to participate.

This year we'll have prizes for the top three houses in our readership area. To win, your home must be in one of the communities we cover, but we'll gladly accept others to be included on a master list of best-decorated homes. The winner of the contest will receive a family four-pack of tickets to see "A Christmas Carol" at Trinity Repertory Company on Dec. 28, with second and third place winners receiving gift cards to local dining/food establishments. All winners and entries will be listed in all five editions of The Breeze on Dec. 18 and 19. Submissions must be made no later than Dec. 11. Please send nighttime photos, along with names and addresses, to ethan@valleybreeze.com or enter by posting them on The Valley Breeze Newspapers Facebook page or posting them on Twitter, notifying us @TheValleyBreeze.

A team of Breeze staffers will head out during the evenings of Dec. 13-15 to view the top five homes selected from photos submitted. We'll be judging homes on a 1-10 scale in three categories, "creativity," "difficulty," and of course, "Christmas spirit." Any home, from the most classy to the most over-the-top tacky, could be a winner.
