We asked you to send us photos of your Christmas lights displays - and there are certainly some spectacular houses out there. Here's a selection of our favourites.
Jackie Westfield sent us this photo of her house. She says they've had lots of lovely people stop to look at their lights and seeing the children's faces is the best.
Nigel sent this picture of his house that he shares with Paul in Chippenham. They've got lights in the windows, a Christmas Tree on display and a wreath on the door.
This photo was sent in by Paul of his parents Mr and Mrs Hughes' house in Lawrence Weston. They're using the display to raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support nurses.
Gary Monger sent in this photo of his house in Frome. They've got a giant polar bear, snowman and even Santa's reindeer in the window.
Claire Hooper sent us this one. They've even got a Christmas Greeting on their wall.
Thanks to everyone who's sent us pictures. If you want to send yours in you can email us at email@example.com, tweet us @itvwestcountry, or post it on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/ITVWestcountry.
