Whether you live in a bungalow or a flat, the Stop, Look, Glisten campaign is encouraging homeowners to transform their properties into magical award-winning grottos that even Santa Claus would be proud of.

David Gold, Royal Mail spokesperson, said: “When it comes to an award-winning house, we’re looking for originality, personality and festivity.

“Royal Mail has a footprint in communities across the UK and we enjoy all the brilliant and magical ways people celebrate Christmas.”

He added: “Light decorations are a particular favourite. That’s why we decided to launch our Stop, Look, Glisten competition, to encourage people across the UK to take pride in their decorations and share them far and wide.”

The lucky winner will win £1,000 whilst the runners up will receive a set of 50 Christmas stamps and a framed personalised image.

But whilst the decorations go up, Royal Mail are reminding contestants not to blind their local postie with festive lights, and to stay safe.

“Also, keep in mind how your decorations might impact those visiting you – especially your postman or postwoman!”
