Show us your Christmas lights

Christmas is coming and the country is awash with flashing lights and huge inflatable snowmen.

Love them or loathe them, you can't ignore them. We want to see your video and still pictures of the Christmas decorations in your area.

Perhaps you have covered the outside of your house with light bulbs, or maybe your neighbour has - either way, take a snap and send it in.

Send us your short video clips and pictures to yourpics@bbc.co.uk and please put the word Christmas lights in the subject line.

Alternatively you can send short video clips (usually less than ten seconds) and pictures from your mobile via MMS to 07725 100 100.

Or if you have a 3G phone you can send video clips to 07888 100 100

We will show a selection of the best ones here and on BBC News 24.

Remember to include your name, where you are from and some background information about the pictures.
