Rumor is that some houses here in the Arklatex have already been decorated for Christmas. Yes, most people would say the first week of November is a little early, but if you are one of those people who truly enjoys the Christmas season, keep reading!

If you live in the Town of Haughton and maybe have a little Clark Griswold in you, this could be the best news you've seen all year!

For nearly thirty years, the Town of Haughton has gone all out for the Christmas season. And this year will be no different!

In keeping with the annual tradition, again this year, Haughton will hold its annual Christmas Light Contest for all of the town's residents.

Now, let's set the record straight. This isn't the kind of contest like Danny DeVito and Matthew Broderick from "Deck the Halls" competed in.

No, not that kind. But there are prizes!

According to the Town of Haughton Facebook page, any resident inside the Haughton town limits, is eligible for the contest, but will need to register their residence in order to be considered.

All contest applications will need to be picked up and returned at the Haughton Town Hall.

The deadline to enter is December 9, 2021 and then judging will take place the week of December 13 through December 17.

Anyone employed by the Town of Haughton is not eligible for entry.

PICTURES: See Inside Carrie Underwood's Breathtaking Nashville Mansion

Carrie Underwood and her husband, Mike Fisher, owned a 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom, 2-half-bathroom home in an affluent Nashville suburb called Brentwood. The 7,000-square-foot mansion features a wet bar, fitness center and tennis court, as well as a four-car garage, walk-out basement with heated marble floors and extra appliances, including a sub-zero fridge and wine fridge. That house is where Underwood suffered a devastating fall in 2017.

The couple sold the luxurious home for $1,410,000 in March of 2019, after they moved into the massive dream home that they had spent several years building from scratch.
