The annual Best Christmas Home Decoration Contest hosted by Hudson Media Group’s Pat O’ Melia is underway in Hudson County. Three winners will each receive $1,000 in cash and a commemorative plaque.

Home spotters are on the streets now looking for decorated homes across Hudson County. Municipalities included in the contest are Jersey City, North Bergen and Bayonne.

Some contest tips for residents include: turn the lights on from 6 p.m. till midnight, use a timer to play it safe, don’t cover the house address, decorate the windows, don’t overdo it with inflatables, and don’t have Santa in the nativity scene.

Every resident in the municipalities is eligible to participate and win. Winners will be selected on Christmas day.

All the contest homes will be seen on the “Christmas TV Special” airing on Comcast and Optimum Cable, and Hudson Media Group streaming channels on livestream.com, YouTube, and Facebook. Other Hudson County locales have their own contest.
