In a fight to the finish for Deck the Courts Thursday night, houses added last minute decorations. After judging, winners were announced at the holiday party in the Commonwealth court. It was a cold night, but housemates gathered for the results.
First place went to Franklin/Essex, second place went to Rehoboth, and Chatham/Deerfield got an honorable mention for syncing their lights up to music. Mather was also recognized for smelling the most like Christmas. Prior to the judging, members of this house baked Christmas cookies.
Note: An earlier version of this article incorrectly listed Chatham/Deerfield as placing second in the competition.
