Light it up for the Electric Elf!

With the turkey and pumpkin pie put away, it’s time to roll out the tinsel, the Christmas tree and the lights.

The Salisbury Post’s Electric Elf is looking for the best light displays in the county to help usher in the Christmas season. Whether your house is decked out in clear white icicle lights, or illuminates the cold nights with color after color, we’re on the lookout.

If there’s a house that goes all out and causes a traffic slowdown year after year, we want to know. If there’s a display that you just have to pull over and snap a picture of, send it in! Whether classic or crazy, the Electric Elf loves them all.

The Post is pulling together a comprehensive list of stunning local light displays. If there’s one you think should be featured, contact the Electric Elf at 704-797-4264 or by e-mail at rebecca.rider@salisburypost.com.

Recommendations must be received by Dec. 10. The list of best and brightest lights will be featured in Dec. 18’s Post.
