Check Out the Best “Decked” House in Caledonia

You voted and this house was the top local vote-getter in our Deck the House contest.

Update: The Pikulas have been selected as a national winner. Congratulations! But they need your votes to win the $100,000 for Racine Unified. 

Who has the best “decked” house in Caledonia?

According to users who voted in our annual Deck the House contest, the Pikulas' Jamestown subdivision home—decked each year by Mike and Debbie with a programmed, musical light display featuring a talking Christmas tree named Douglas Fir—has the best holiday lights here. 

We had tons of national entries in this year’s Deck the House contest and in our quest to find the most over-the-top holiday decorations in the country, we’ve seen everything from a life-size Santa to holiday lights so bright they could blind the neighbors.

We loved showcasing everyone’s holiday spirit, but Deck the House isn’t over yet. We’re still looking for the one home so spectacularly decorated that it could be the national grand prize winner of our contest.

We will choose 24 finalists from all our entries across the country. From Dec. 18- Dec. 27, vote for your favorite and that person could win $100,000 for his or her local school district.

All you have to do is visit this page to browse a gallery of the finalists and cast your vote beginning Dec. 18. On Dec. 28, we’ll announce the grand prize winner of our Deck the House contest.

So, now’s your chance to tell us who has the best “decked” house in the country. Let us know by voting for your favorite beginning Dec. 18.

Well, it is now official - our home is once again a finalist in the contest! On the line is $100,000 for RUSD - which they sure could use. From our experience last year, it is critical to get the voting going early - as everyone can vothe once per day! That means 10 votes from every person starting today - all the way to December 27th! So please spread the word - especially that you can vote daily and not just one time!

As much as I agree your house is the best I've seen yet Mike, I can't see giving RUSD the $100,000 when they spend money so badly...sorry :( If they would get better money managers I would have no problem with this but the way they do things now it's like flushing away the money.
