A trophy and the title of Winner of the 2020 Picayune Magazine’s Cheeriest Christmas Decorating Contest will be presented . A photo of the winning display will be posted online.

The Picayune Magazine also is delivering letters to Santa via North Pole Express Mail. Children who write to Santa and place their letter in the bright red mailbox outside of our office at 1007 Avenue K in Marble Falls will receive a response letter from Santa. 

Letters MUST include a return address in order for Santa to send a response.
