  1. Sadly, we continue on our inexorable electoral journey towards a posh, third world enclave in a third world country

  2. Evergreen Christmas; hands down! I wish I had posted “my” living room picture. 😆🎄🎁

  3. Kinda lousy decorations at each of the entrants. Nothing worthy of a vote to be honest. Sad when 3 strings of lights and a $30 blow up win the contest. LOL — I guess that’s 2020 though!

  4. Please. Please. No more conspiracy theories regarding the validity of the vote. We have had enough of those to last a lifetime. Accept the result. Enjoy the holiday. Find pleasure in the acts to enliven the beauty of our neighborhoods and lift our spirits.

  5. My Gables neighbors and I watched, appalled, as the votes miraculously increased for Santa’s Cottage at the rate of 1-2 per second starting at around 10:20 pm last night… Approximately 90 minutes before the contest concluded. We found it highly suspect that until that point, Santa’s Cottage only had a few hundred votes from the entirety of the contest. Then, suddenly, thousands are cast within the final hour. Looking at the other comments posted, I have to wonder if Santa’s Cottage is complaining about the very thing they were doing… While they were doing it. Hmmm…

  6. Santa’s Cottage is so tasteful and elegant yet homey. I just want to move right in. Very inviting.
    Congratulations, you have my vote.

  7. Olaf’s tropical paradise has sincerely rigged the system. It’s literally impossible to cast over 50 votes in 1 minute. Santa’s cottage and an Evergreen Christmas are by far the best decorated home.

  8. Absolutely love Olaf’s Topical Paradise. It takes a lot of effort to decorate and maintain the outside of a home. This enchanting display shows visitors what makes Coral Gables spectacular!

  9. Santas Cottage is a Gables twist to the nostalgic reference of Christmas. Beautiful and magical.

  10. Santa’s Cottage looks like a page out of House Beautiful- no contest … it is picture perfect!

  11. All very beautiful, but I love Santa’s Cottage. So representative of Coral Gables.

  12. I love them all, but Santa’s cottage is my favorite! Thank you, neighbors, for brightening our community with good cheer and keeping the spirit of Christmas.

  13. Santa’s cottage is so beautifully decorated- warm and inviting. Exemplifies everything that is beautiful in Coral Gables, gorgeous mantel over fireplace, arches snd a beautiful wood ceiling. Congratulation to the homeowner who did a wonderful job.

  14. Olaf’s Tropical Paradise is truly enchanting. I’d love to take my children there to enjoy it in person. Absolutely wonderful.
