The spirit of Christmas is spreading throughout High River again this year with 'Light Up High River: Christmas Edition'.

Since 2014 it's been the annual tradition of decking out your house, yard or business with Christmas lights and then having the public vote on their favourites.

And something extra special this year is one of the locations on the map to visit and vote on is a drop off location to send a letter to Santa.

Organizer Lorraine Watson says it's the first time they've been able to do this.

"One of our entries has been selected as a Santa letter depot so if kids want to drop off their letters to Santa over at Aurora Drive, they will get a letter back from the jolly old Santa himself."

The address is 308 Aurora Drive in the northeast of High River, and it's the #3 red location on the map.

While registration has wrapped up for entries there are still options for getting your house on the coveted map.

Watson says you can still get on board with a 'Reindeer Recommendation'.

"That doesn't mean you can't submit your favourite decorations. We have Reindeer Recommendations, just pop on over to High River Christmas dot ca and in the 'light up' section you can leave a Reindeer Recommendation and we'll put that on the map. We actually have quite a number of Reindeer Recommendations this year as well."

The categories are favourite Home and favourite Business. There's also a draw from all home and business entries and there's even a prize for one lucky voter.

Prizes and bragging rights are on the line in the festive townwide contest.
