We are also happy that people found the fun in this contest and were competitive but always friendly. As our first year doing this, we were thrilled to receive 34 nominations. Please see the list of winners below as the top three in each category. We plan to bring around the winner lawn signs around tomorrow evening (Monday). If no one will be home, just shoot a message to this may and we'll contact you. We were also thrilled to receive messages about younger folks and kids who got into the contest and decorated themselves or spent some of their own money for decorations - like Christopher and JoJo Roy.
