Just weeks after the Schaumburg Park District went looking for the scariest Halloween-decorated homes in the area, judges will soon be looking for more joyful trappings as the annual Holiday House Decorating Contest gets under way.

The first 10 houses to enter will be judged on their originality, arrangement, theme and overall design by those participating in the Holiday House Decorating Tours on Monday, Dec. 3, and Thursday, Dec. 6.
