4. 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. If this sounds like your house, upload a photo or video of your home to our contest page from Nov. 26 to Dec. 16.

Can't wait until the sun sets later! Thanks for posting it. Everyone remember the Party Rock-decorated house? (Is it still on youtube?)
