Fans of the holiday season will be able to let their imagination run wild in this second edition, which is sure to be full of lights, bows and inflatable dolls alluding to one of the most anticipated seasons for children and adults.

"Decorate your walls, rooftops, doors and patios with the brightest lights and show us your Christmas spirit, whatever you celebrate!" the council says in its invitation to the competition which has started its entries.

This year, the organizers have added a special category for inflatables, one of the most popular items in backyard decorating this season, so it's time to get out and prepare the biggest, flashiest and most fun to dazzle the judges.

The registration form opened this November 29th, and the deadline for subscriptions will be Sunday, December 19th at 11:59 pm ?or when a maximum of 50 applications is reached?

Entry to the contest is FREE! So all those willing to invest time and effort in this festive contest are welcome to do so.

Papers will be evaluated in the following manner:

The 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will be selected in the following categories

  • Happy and bright - This category is all about the lights.
  • Christmas Spirit - Exalt your enthusiasm and joy for Christmas.
  • Amazing Inflatables ? This one goes for those who love figures full of hot air and imagination.

The most coveted prize is being able to boast that your home has taken home an award for best decorating, however, the spoils include festive gifts and certificates from local businesses, as well as impressive signs to proudly display in the yard declaring you the winner.
