It's Time for the 2016 Version of Show Us Your Home for the Holidays

Real Estate Agent with Cedaredge Land Company

HO HO HO! It's time once again for the Show Us Your Home for the Holidays ActiveRain Challenge.

Today we are busy decorating the office and getting it ready for the Christmas season. We all love this time of year. The decorations are a big part of helping me to get into the holiday spirit. 

Already homes in my area are shining bright with outdoor Christmas lights and displays. The Main Street businesses are also doing their part to standout for the holiday season. At Cedaredge Land Company we are trying to outshine everyone else with our decorations. 

For this year's challenge we are going to do things a bit differently. I'm going to ask that you include two holiday themed photos, OR one video of at least 1:30 (that's one minute and thirty seconds). Then write a post telling us about the pictures, or video. I know everyone has a lot of extra things happening at this time of the year, so this is an easy and fun challenge.

Now here's the rules:

All pictures and videos must be holiday themed. 

Enter two pictures in one blog post, or one video of at least 1:30. 

The post must be at least 200 words. Tell us something about your pictures and the local event, or about your video. 

Leave a link to your entry in the comments section below. The link must open in a new window. One entry per person.

750 points will be awarded in January. 

Remember the pictures and video don't have to be of your home, but feel free to share pictures of your home if you would like. 

This challenge runs from December 3rd to midnight on December 25th. 

No dark or blurry photos will be accepted. 

Go out with your camera, and take some awesome pictures and video. I can't wait to see the entries. 

Merry Christmas!!!

Hi Debbie, thank you for hosting this contest again this year! I made a little video and included it in my Home For The Holiday post but didn't have enough footage to make it a min and a half. Hope you'll enjoy it regardless. 

Merry Christmas!

Hello Debbie Laity 

I am backtracking as a number of my early morning comments on Christmas are points either   so frustrating.  I did have my post in and commented for your fun contest, though, and I hope you can still count it.

Merry Christmas From My Home To Yours


Have a Very Happy New Year!
