Enter Patch's 'Deck the House' Contest For a Chance to Win $100,000

Did you decorate your house for the holidays this year? Enter our "Deck the House" contest and you could win $100,000 for your local school district and $500 to pay your electric bills!

We’re launching our annual Deck the House Contest to find the most over-the-top holiday decorations in America — the best “decked” house in the country — the one home so spectacularly decorated that everyone in town jokes your holiday decorations could rival Rockefeller Center.

If this sounds like your house, upload a photo or video of your home to our contest page from Nov. 26 to Dec. 16 deckthehouse.patch.com/contest/newmilford-nj.

Only residents of Patch towns are eligible to enter. We’ll select 24 regional finalists, and from them, pick one grand prize winner. Patch will pay up to $500 of the utility bill for each finalist, while our national winner will have $100,000 donated to his or her local school district.

Our contest is right around the corner, so now’s the time to get your holiday decorations out of the attic and “deck” your house.

Lovely - rewarding flamboyancy, the waste of energy, and the trivialization of what Christmas is all about. Bah humbug!! :0(

Yeah, seems especially rude somehow on the heels of Hurricane Sandy. Being w/o power for 7 days reinforced my appreciation for a single lightbulb and now just weeks later, "over the top" seems to be the rule of the day. And all the "dead" inflatables covering lawns during the day.... not pretty.

If people want to pretty up their homes for the Christmas Holiday in what ever way, shape or form or any way they feel fit, so be it. Certainly they are NOT doing it to be RUDE or Flamboyant, perhaps they enjoy bringing smiles to children of ALL ages faces...and they are happy to be ABLE to do so.

I like to pretty up for the holidays, but I just prefer something simpler -- a wreath, a string of lights. That's just my personal preference. I didn't mean to imply people who decorate more extravagantly are being rude - just noting the startling juxtoposition between the darkness of Sandy and all the decorations now. "Rude" was probably the wrong word to use to make my point.
