Spirit of Christmas Tour announced for 11th year

The Clinton Courier

Spirit Of ChristmasThis Christmas season marks the eleventh year that The Clinton Courier will sponsor the Spirit of Christmas Tour for the community. Designed to encourage businesses and homeowners to decorate for the holidays, the Tour was initially created to replace a former awards program the City used to sponsor that recognized homes throughout town that were particularly festive or well-lit with holiday displays.

In prior years, the Tour has included close to one hundred homes, businesses and subdivisions. Citizens can nominate themselves and their own house or business; a neighbor whose seasonal efforts stand out; or simply a place that they think other people would enjoy seeing during the holiday time.

Previous years of the Tour have been a great success, said Courier publisher Clay Mansell.

“Each year, we hear from families about how they have incorporated our tour into their holiday traditions and how much joy it brings to the community. We encourage both businesses and families alike to get into the Christmas Spirit and join in on the tour,” said Mansell. “We love to see how much bigger and better the decorations get every year!”

Nominations can be made to office@TheClintonCourier.net or by calling 601-990-9511. All decorations should be in place and lit by the time judging begins on December 4.

Judging will be completed between December 4-8. The December 21 edition of The Clinton Courier will include the addresses of homes that make the tour, and homes and businesses on the tour will be acknowledged with a yard sign.

    On the dates judging was conducted, my brother passed away and we were unable to do our Christmas decorations. Would it be possible for the judges to checkout our decorations at our home now? If so. We live at: 1201 Laurelwood Drive. My husband takes pride in giving all the children joy at the site We have many of their favorites.

      We are so sorry for your loss!
      We are putting out signs for the tour this week, so we will make sure to drive by your home to judge and give you a sign if it makes the list! Thank you!

        Thank you so much for including us on the tour. We have had so many cars coming by to see our home. It means so much to us seeing the childrens faces light up.
