Show off your Christmas house lights to the world, in our website event

Christmas Lights

This Christmas we want our website lit-up by your videos of your Christmas decorations.

Decorating the exterior of homes and gardens with festive lights and decorations has become as much a part of our culture as the traditional Christmas tree.

They make for vibrant and colourful scenes and would love to see your videos of them in action.

We’re asking our readers and users to submit a short video clip, around 15 seconds, of their own house lit up.

The Observer team will then judge the best Christmas lights and the winner will be announced on our website on Friday December 20.

Must be video, no longer than 15 seconds, no photographs, please:

Try to keep the camera as still as possible, and if filmed using a phone, please film it landscape, not upright.

Don’t forget to include your contact email address and phone number, including the town or village you live in.

So, what are you waiting for? Take a video of your Christmas decorations today and email them to
