An anonymous individual in the Sayner-Star Lake area is “calling all Griswolds” to take part in a light-hearted Christmas decorating contest for homes located in the town of Plum Lake.

Residents are encouraged to string up lights and put out their best holiday decor for a chance to win gift certificates donated by area businesses including Hillside Tavern and Grill, Stillwaters Restaurant, Sayner Mobil Express, Eliason Lumber and Hardware, GreenWeavers Gift and Apparel, Up North Traders, Traditions and Sayner Pub.

“I’m doing this because we all need to find a little joy wherever we can get it this year,” said the anonymous spokesperson. “This is a friendly competition that encourages people to just have a little fun.”

To take part in the competition, residents should call Julie at (715) 542-3985 with their physical address and a phone number. Judging will take place Dec. 20-22, between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m.

The spokesperson added that this competition is about finding the simple pleasures this holiday season and that no display is too small. “Besides, I’d hate to have to return all these gift certificates,” she said.
