This annual competition has always brought joy to our family. However, in the current plague ridden environment, the fact that we will have one piece of normalcy that is also safe is so incredibly unbelievable for our spirit in general. I feel so blessed to be in a city where the people pick themselves up and are continuing to share the holiday spirit with the rest of our residents, regardless of whatever may have happened to them in 2020.

I just want to thank all of the people who participated in making this happen by decorating their homes, those people who nominated all of our winning participants, every member of the committee who judges this event, and the city for maintaining such a wonderful website and contact with us so that we are able to attend.

Happy holidays, whichever you may celebrate, and here is to a better new year!

Thank you for sharing the beautiful lights via the drone. I usually set up a miniature Christmas Village in my garage but didn't this year because of Covid concerns. I especially liked the "Nightmare Before Christmas" theme and the Show Stopper. Great job to all who participated and Congratulations to the winners. Stay safe everyone and Happy Holidays!

All I can say is WOW! I hope you continue this drone tour! Every year we try to go out looking at lights. Most of the time we cannot find the winners even with the map or we get tired of looking for the addresses at night.

Thank you to all that continue to Light up the Night with your great Christmas displays! We really enjoy seeing them.
