It really doesn’t matter whether you deck your halls like a department store or have a tree reminiscent of a Charlie Brown Christmas. As long as you’ve embraced the holiday spirit via boughs of holly and twinkling lights (and not fist fights over a discounted computer), we want to hear from you! From now until Tuesday, December 18, we’re taking submissions for the best festive décor in Chicago. No, not your fave retail outlet or your neighbor’s obnoxious front yard. We’re talking about your very own winter wonderland.
To enter, simply email an Instagram pic of your festivus, including your name, what neighborhood you’re from, and what you love the most about the holidays in Chicago. Your local editor (that's me!) will let you know if you made the cut! What happens next? Your snap could be a part of Refinery29 Chicago readers' best decorations story come the week of Christmas. Who needs a roaring fireplace on a television screen when you’ve got all of this homegrown holiday love? Here’s to a happy and healthy season filled with shopping, copious parties, and (of course) amazing spirit. Now where's that mistletoe when you need it?
