    Participles and commas

    I've read a lot about commas which separate Participles in sentences, and still I can't say for sure whether I need or don't need to put comma in sentences of this kind "The VILLAGERS are celebrating Christmas in the streets covered with deep snow". I've read that, if this Past Participle is at the beginnig of the sentence like "Covered with deep snow, the streets are..." I have to put a comma. If the Participle is at the end, like in my case, I don't have to put any comma here. Is this true?
