Christmas lights: Share your videos

The district is counting down to Christmas, and this is your chance to share footage of your own festive lights.

People across Harrogate, Knaresborough, Nidderdale, Ripon and Wetherby will decorate their homes and gardens with festive lights and decorations over the next few weeks.

Many do it to simply cheer up their street and make people smile in austere times. Others are annual extravaganzas which raise money for charity.

To celebrate, we at the Harrogate Advertiser series want you to upload a short video clip of your lights for all to see on our websites.

To get your lights online, submit a short video clip, up to 15 seconds in length. Readers are asked to keep the camera as still as possible, and ensure we can see your house or garden in all its festive glory.

We will then judge which are the best lights in the district, and feature the house in the Christmas edition of the newspaper.

Send your clip, along with your name and contact details to reporter Alex Johnston by attaching the file via email to

Winners to be announced by Friday December 20.
