Winners announced in Metro’s Show Us Your Lights contest!

Thanks for entering Show Us Your Lights!

When Metro put out the call for photos of your holiday lights displays, we never imagined the incredible response we’d get — countless winter wonderlands dazzling onlookers across NYC, Boston and Philly!

A huge thanks to all our readers who entered the contest, but there can only be one winner from each city.

Congratulations to the owners of these three incredible lights displays. They’ll each be receiving a $150 gift card to Macy’s. Their dazzling creations will also be featured in Metro on Dec. 24.

Presenting the winners of Metro’s 2012 Show Us Your Lights contest! Happy Holidays!

We can see why and it looks great, Louis! Congratulations!

Extra points for synching his lights display with holiday music.

Well done, Robert! Looks (and sounds) spectacular!
