Saline Selects: Holiday Light Contest

Tis the season to deck the halls. And the porch. And the windows, trees, and everything else (within city or township ordinance) you can think of.

In that spirit, we want to celebrate our neighbors who've gone above and beyond to light up the holiday season in Saline.

So we propose a contest. Actually two contests.

We want you to nominate the best decorated home and best decorated business in the Saline Area Schools district.

We'll have nominations open until Tuesday night. And then we'll put them to a poll.

The winners of each contest will receive a $50 gift card at Junga Ace Hardware, a free large pizza at Mancino's and two passes for a movie at Emagine Theatre in Saline.

And the nominator of the winners will also get two passes for movies at Emagine Theater.

But to nominate, you have to do it here, in this forum - in this very thread.

And you have to post a picture OR a video.

To post, you need to register (  and log in (

To add an image, scroll down to the bottom of the comment screen and click "choose file" when replying. To add a video, you must upload it to a third party server (twitter, youtube) and then embed it here. Use the embed media icon (see below) and paste the embed code.

So again, here's what you need to do to nominate:

1) Post the address

2) Post media (either a picture and/or video)

UPDATE: Nominations will be accepted until 12 a.m., Dec. 11.

Our thanks to Jeff and Katie Spence at Mancino's, Jim Junga at Junga Ace Hardware, and Paul Glantz at Emagine Studio for supporting our contest.

By way of encouraging others to participate, I'll offer up this blast from the past as the one to beat. Didn't see anything in the Official Contest Rules about when the lights had to have been put up, nor whether they must still be up to be eligible.

My Holiday Lighting nomination here is by Saline resident Mike Gudith.

In addition to my own photograph above, Jason Colthorp of covered this live in November of 2015 for Click on Detroit Local 4 TV. How's that for posting still image and video, in this forum - in this very thread?

Anyone think they can top this?

If so, I'm looking forward to seeing your entries.
