Do you go all out decorating for the holidays? Have you seen a dynamic display in the Southland?
Then send the address and information on what’s featured to firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Holiday Homes” in the subject line.
If you have photos of the display, send those in .jpg format.
Then watch for the Dec. 21 Weekend magazine for a list of decorated homes.
Friday’s Weekend features Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra’s BMO Harris Bank Holiday Concerts in Frankfort and a movie review of “Playing for Keeps.”
