The Christmas spirit is contagious in Dorchester.
Our village has a good reputation for its many Christmas lights and other decorations on homes during the holiday season.
Every December, from one end of the village to the other, Christmas displays always greet residents and out-of-towners alike.
This year, Dorchester will have a "Display of Lights" weekend this Friday through Sunday (Dec. 4, 5 and 6).
Residents and visitors are invited to drive throughout town to see all the displays.
To honor the Dorchester homes that best reflect the Christmas and holiday spirit, send your nominations for "Best Decorated Dorchester home." E-mail your nominations to Dorchester.Times@gmail.com.
Thanks to all those who are taking time to decorate their homes for the Christmas season, and to those who take time to send us their nominations.
In the meantime, here are the Dorchester homes that have received the most votes so far, starting with No. 1 first. (Click on each picture for a better view.)
