Think your light-up Santa on the porch is good? Wait til you see Ireland’s most Christmassy homes
Are you feeling especially proud of the lights you hung on the roof this year, or the time you spent wrapping them around the tree in your garden? Get ready to be put to shame by the following houses.
Energia have announced their six finalists for Ireland’s Most Christmassy Home of 2020, with two finalists in Dublin, and more in Clare, Carlow, Tipperary and Cork.
The annual competition has been running for five years and comes down to a public vote. This year, Energia have doubled their charity prize money with donations of €6,000, €4,000 and €2,000 being awarded to the charity of choice of the first, second and third-placed entries.
“We once again received some incredible entries from homes all across the country,” said Geoff Codd, Head of Marketing and Retail Development at Energia. “It was extremely difficult to narrow down the final shortlist and after what has been a difficult year for us all, it is great to see such festive spirit on display from all households. All of us at Energia are once again delighted to have a chance to support local causes and charities and would encourage everyone to get voting for their favourite Christmassy Home.”
