Simple Rules:

Have fun with it.
Don’t stress over going all out or not having time to do some crazy animated display you saw online. Really, simple is just fine. The more participation along Haywood Road, the more festive it will look overall.
• Decorations should be visible from the sidewalk/street.
• Lighting, so your window can be viewed after hours, is recommended.
• Encourage your staff to come to the Wrap Party on Sunday, December 17, 6-8pm so we can celebrate together.
