DECK THE HALLS ... While many people send warm wishes to one another during the holidays, it's also a time for some friendly competition, as seen through shows like "The Great Christmas Light Fight." The city of Palo Alto is hosting a holiday decoration contest that'll surely get folks into the spirit of the season. Community members are invited to deck out the outside of their home or business, front door and/or window with holiday decorations, such as the life-sized inflatable of Frosty the Snowman that's been stored in the garage all year long or with ornaments and lights radiating from the front yard tree. Anyone interested in entering must apply by the end of the day on Dec. 15. Judges will vet the entries Dec. 16-20 in three categories: home, business and people's choice. Along with bragging rights and photos of their decor shared on the city's social media accounts, the winner in each category will be awarded a $50 gift card to a Palo Alto restaurant of their choice. The results will be announced on Dec. 23. For more information and to register, visit
