The small town of McAdenville, North Carolina, known as “Christmas Town USA” is again this year up for a national award, and you can help the town win!

I was born in Gastonia, North Carolina and have spent most of my life in Gaston County. I grew up thinking that Santa sometimes lived in McAdenville. I mean, it’s called “Christmas Town USA”, so as a kid I just figured Santa was there!

I’ve seen the lights numerous times, and each year the lights are more extravagant. For the second year in a row, McAdenville is up for the “Best Public Holiday Lights Display” sponsored by USA Today.

The voting began on November 4 and will continue through noon on December 2. The winner will be announced on December 13. You must be at least 18 years old to vote, and you can vote only once per each 24 hour period.  Vote often! It’d be awesome to see a hometown lights display win.

If you’ve never experienced “Christmas Town USA”, then you should definitely put it on your to-do list this year. Details on the lights can be found here  and to vote for McAdenville in the contest, click here.  I just voted and right now McAdenville is ranked #2 out of 20. Vote soon!
