Show off your holiday light design chops

Bill Muse sets up his light extravaganza in Seattle every year by about Dec. 1. Look for this year’s at 5103 S. Alaska St.

We do it every year.

Haul out the old, rickety ladder and the 20 tangled strings of lights collected over the last eight years.  Battle with that one broken light bulb that seems to control all the other lights on the strand.  Then venture out into the elements, braving wind, rain and frozen fingers, to arrange those stubborn strands of lights on our homes and in our yards.

All that, just in the name of holiday spirit.  And bragging rights, of course.

As in past years, The Seattle Times is giving readers a chance to show off their light-design chops.  Check out the online photo album.

Once your display is up, take a picture and post it to the album. Write your address in the caption so others can drive by and admire your handiwork.

If Seattle Times editors see something they love, they may send out a photographer and feature your house in the paper. So climb in those attics, drag out the decorations and show off your stuff.
