A trophy and $350 was presented to Alice Richardson, of Davison's, as the overall winner of the month-long contest. She said: “I love Christmas and enjoy decorating and participating in the contest. I would urge all business owners to decorate as you never know how much it might brighten someone's day”.

The “people's choice” award went to Wong's Golden Dragon. Monet Wong collected the mayor's trophy and $200.
The contest was a collaboration between the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation, St George's Rotary and the Corporation of St George.
Ray Lambert, BEDC officer, said: “BEDC is pleased to assist with this event. It's a fun way to reward those businesses who do a great job decorating their stores, which helps to enhance the overall atmosphere and shopping experience of the town”.
