Dig out your inflatable Santa, your trees and your baubles and start untangling your strings of Christmas lights, because now is the time to plan for and enter The Weekend Sun Christmas Lights Drive.

It's the time of year to dress your house to the twinkling, glittering nines and watch as adults and children alike trundle past and stare in awe at your impressive decorating skills.

Entrants go in the draw to win some great prizes, including one of two hampers worth $140 filled with delicious goodies, so why not get into the Christmas spirit and make your house shine. It's free to enter!

All entered decorated houses will have their addresses published on a big double page Christmas Lights Drive spread in The Weekend Sun on December 8 so the community can enjoy the twinkling lights.

Entries close on Tuesday December 5, so make sure you go to to register, email, or fill out the entry form below and post it to: PO Box 240, Tauranga, 3140, or drop it into our offices at Number 1 The Strand, Tauranga.

The Weekend Sun Christmas Lights Drive will run from December 8 right up to December 24.
