Is there a house that’s all lit up for Christmas and not on our map?
If so, be sure to send us the address and a photo asap so we can include it on the Mountain News Christmas Lights Tour.
The judges will be out next Wednesday night and cast their votes in four categories: Overall appeal; volume (sheer number of lights, decorations, space consumed); dazzle and design/concept.
There will be trophies and prizes for the best and brightest homes in Wards 6, 7 and 8.
This year’s judges are Kathy Archer of Mountain Kidz Klub, Mike Nabuurs of Funny 820 and Rod Jerred, Mark Newman and Gord Bowes of the Mountain News.
To get on the list, email your name, contact phone number and street address, along with a description and photo of your creative genius to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Even if you don’t have the Griswold gene, be sure to check out the special section and map on our website to see which homes are worth looking at. See hamiltonnews.com/tag/christmaslights2012.
