With the BDT Christmas light competition coming to a close, organisers have expressed surprise that more people have not entered this year.
The competition has only received a relative handful of nominations, and BDT Advertising Representative, Kristy Tucker, said considering the prize available she thought a lot more people would have entered.
The competition has changed this year and is no longer about who has the best display. Now the winners - two families of four - will be picked from a draw to win a ride in a limousine to see all the light displays on Wednesday, December 21.
“People might not think they have a large display but for us it is just about getting a listing of the lights,” said Ms Tucker. “It’s not who has the best display.
“People should just put an entry in and we can list homes for people to see. It is an added bonus to enter your house.”
Nominations close on Monday and the winners will be announced in the paper on Tuesday.
The homes listed below are among those who have put up the Christmas lights.
