Christmas lights have been getting the big switch on all over the world, like these ones in American capital Washington DC.
On a smaller scale, but only slightly, is Eric Marshall from Bagby in Yorkshire. He charges people to look at his lights, and gives the cash to charity.
It's not just lights but fireworks in Mexico City, Mexico.
Things look a little calmer for this girl in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.
Another country, another man with lots of lights. Rolf Vogt from Calle in Germany has obviously spent a while on his display.
The shape of a tree is picked out in lights and reflected in this pool in Varna, Bulgaria.
And in Polish capital Warsaw, this shopper is silhouetted against the lights.
