We asked and many Santa Barbara-area readers responded with photos of their Christmas and holiday displays.
It’s clear that despite the coronavirus pandemic and all that 2020 has thrown at us, local residents have not lost their holiday spirit, and in fact have dug deeper than ever this year.
But we’re not done.
This is just the first installment, and we hope many more of you will join us in helping make the community’s spirits bright.
If you’d like to be included, please email your photos to email@example.com, with the subject line, “Holiday Cheer.”
Be sure to include the address of the home or business (for publication on Noozhawk and our social media channels), along with your name and phone number (not for publication).
And feel free to tell us a little bit about your decorating efforts.
With digital images, it’s important to remember that size does matter. Images should be at least 250K in size; closer to 1 MB is better.
For our format, horizontal images are better than vertical, although vertical pictures will still be accepted.
Won’t you help us spread some holiday cheer in Santa Barbara County?
