Your Christmas lights in Montrose

Enter our Christmas light competition

This Christmas we’re hoping to light up our website with videos of the modern phenomenon of decorating the exterior of homes and gardens with festive lights and decorations.

Love them or hate them, they are becoming increasingly popular. Many do it to simply cheer up their street and make people smile in austere times, while others are annual extravaganzas which raise money for charity.

We are asking our readers and online users to submit a short video clip of 15 seconds of their house lit up this Christmas. We want to see the front of your houses in all their festive glory.

To enter, all you need to is submit a clip of a maximum of 15 seconds, which must be a video, to before 2 p.m. on Friday, December 20. Please try to keep the camera as still as possible and don’t forget to include your contact details in the e-mail, so we can let you know if you’ve won.

The winner will receive a present, their video displayed on our website as the winner and a picture in the paper.
