Check Out the Best 'Decked' House in Glen Cove

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

Who has the best “decked” house in Glen Cove? 

According to users who voted in our annual Deck the House contest, this home on Francis Terrace has the best holiday lights in Glen Cove.

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.

The house on Francis Terrace puts the T in trashy. Nothing about what Christmas really means. The birth of Christ.

I have always wondered what their neighbors feel about this house. This has to get tedious and old after awhile.

This is a yearly favorite!! Mike does this as a labor of love for the kids and adults of our community,and from all over long island. Give this another look through the eyes of the people who find this a great holiday attraction. And most of all give mike a break!!!!

The kids and adults of the community may love it but it's a bit overdone for my taste. It is unusually bright and busy though. I'll give it that. Ít's something to take a look at.

Please don't hate the haters who proclaim they know what "Christ"mas is all about. I do not find it very christian to insult someone who works hard to put a smile on a child's face. There is a section that has a manger at this house. Its all in fun and trying to make others happy. What is so wrong with that? I do not know why people get off trying to hurt others. Thank you Mike for all the hard work you do to make others happy!

Yes, a lot of work and energy goes into the display on Francis Terrace. However, it does not look like a SILENT NIGHT - HOLY NIGHT or the night when a child is eagerly awaiting SANTA. It looks like an accumulation of Christmas decorations on sale at Harrows! The use of electrical energy is excessive, especially with all the power outages we endured during Superstorm Sandy. It would be better if the homeowner put his energy and that electrical power to better use. LESS - more carefully designed would be MORE effective and meaningful. MERRY CHRISTMAS.
