A life-sized Santa Claus climbing a ladder near a front door. An antique manger decorated with vintage multi-colored bulbs. A Christmas village with a decades-old Lionel train set running through it.

These are just a few of the sights we have seen in our Deck the Halls holiday decorating contests, during which we’ve visited more than 30 of the best-decorated homes on the North Fork.

This time, we hope to see even more holiday spirit as we bring the contest back for a third season. The winner will once again receive a $1,000 gift certificate to Riverhead Building Supply, the contest’s grand prize sponsor. (more…)
