Newport, like many New England seaside communities, is known for its houses displaying iconic white candles in windows, but our City by the Sea has taken it to heart to welcome people into their homes and businesses with grandeur. The other top winners are listed on page 4. Strolling the streets is an activity all can enjoy this holiday season. The month-long Christmas in Newport, created more than 40 years ago, still has much to offer this month. For more events, see page 13. (Photos by Meri Keller)
