Christmas Decor for Good Causes


We noted a couple of weeks ago that Christmas decorations had already made their way to the streets of Brooklyn. Well, now those ornaments and lights are attached to a cause. The annual Atlantic Avenue Holiday Window Design Competition is now under way, and this year's theme is very Miss America: world peace. What does that mean? Twist your tiny white lights into peace symbols? Make Barack Obama's face out of tinsel? Here's what the folks at the Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corporation have to say: "Competitors must have their window designs installed by 6 p.m. on December 3, 2008 when the panel of judges will walk along the avenue to view and judge individual store windows based on the following criteria: original creative concept; use of materials; display technique; merchandising acumen; execution on a holiday theme and eye catching appeal for pedestrians." Winners will be announced on Thursday, December 4, 2008 at 6:00 p.m., at Belarusian Church, corner of Atlantic Avenue and Bond Street. Councilmember David Yassky will attend, as always, and local school kids will perform Christmas carols. Please, if you see any good windows, snap a photo and send them in. Some photos from last year here.
