COMPETITION: DO YOU LIVE CHRISTMAS?

Do you live on Christmas Street? Reside on Holly Road? Do you call Mistletoe Street or Tinsel Road home?

The British Christmas Tree Growers Association is on the hunt for the most Christmassy street name in the UK.

The competition

BCTGA has launched a competition on Facebook and is asking you to comment on the post if you live on a street name which has Christmas connotations.

At the end of September, entries will be judged by a panel of Christmas tree growers from BCTGA and shortlisted to five.

The final five will then be put to a public vote. If less than five entries are submitted, all entries will be shortlisted and put forward to the public vote.

The person voted as having the most Christmassy address in the UK will win a real Christmas tree up to 6ft tall.

This will be delivered to the winner’s house in December in time for Christmas.
