Basic rules:

  • Have fun with it.
  • Don’t stress over going all out or not having time to do some crazy animated display you saw online. Really, simple is just fine.
  • Decorations should be visible from the sidewalk/street.
  • Lighting, so your window can be viewed after hours, is encouraged.
  • We recommend you have your window ready by December 4, but no worries if you miss that by a couple days. Keep us in the loop, so we can let the judges know when your window is ready.
  • Encourage your staff to come to the Wrap Party on Sunday, December 18, 6-8pm so we can celebrate together.
