Think your home is one of the best decorated for Christmas this year?

Prove it by entering your home in Banff-Airdrie’s Christmas Decorating Contest on my website at

"One of my favorite parts of this season are the lights and decorations that are on display across our neighbourhoods," says local MP Blake Richards. "Now more than ever, decorating our homes for Christmas is a way to spread joy and cheer."

He's going to be touring the constituency to view some of the incredible displays, including those in Cochrane.

"I look forward to seeing the fantastic Christmas displays across our communities!"

The best-decorated homes will be chosen and residents in our community will vote for their favorites.

Christmas-themed prizes will be awarded to winners.

Submissions will be accepted until 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 15th, so the earlier you enter, the better.

This is the first time he's held a Christmas decorating contest. Traditionally, Richards holds a series of open houses but that isn't possible this year. He wanted to do something fun for people to enjoy.

Richards says nonperishable food donations are also being accepted at his office, and they have volunteers available across the constituency who will pick up donations.
