Show us your lights: Enter Metro’s holiday decoration contest

Think you can top this?

Do you spread holiday cheer through merry wreaths and giant inflatable Santas? Does your home illuminate the whole block with the warm glow of flashing icicle lights? Do you spend hours and hours inspecting each strand of bulbs in preparation for your personal grand lighting ceremony where friends and family ooh and ahh at your masterpiece?  

If this sounds like you…

Show us your lights!



Metro is looking for the best and brightest holiday decoration displays! Send us your photos and we’ll be featuring the craziest, merriest and most awe-inspiring homes on the pages of Metro and on Metro.us.
