Your Christmas lights displays

We asked you to send us photos of your Christmas lights displays - and there are certainly some spectacular houses out there. Here are a couple of our favourites.

The Dunn family sent us this picture of their house in Tiverton. The Dunn's are raising money for charity and have been drawing crowds of onlookers.
