Each week, we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. This week it is "Decorations".

Rushika Ranen Das: "While wandering about in the lanes of a souk, I came across these traditional lanterns that lit up the entire area. These lamps made with stained glass and a rustic metal finishing looked so captivating that it deserved a click."
Belinda Parinas: "I know nothing about photography so I just shutter-happily took some photos here and there in Singapore; took some in vivid colours, some in monochrome. This is one of my favourites so far - an accidental self-portrait in a Christmas ball."

Etienne Serville: "A blue light is falling on the white model to remember winter."
Ruth Moucharafieh: "Shoppers stroll beneath the decorations in downtown Beirut late one evening. The words spell out Love, Hope and Peace....things that the Middle East could do with this Christmas."
Yvonne Sandiford: "Christmas decorations in the centre of Madrid."
Tom Hartrey: "It's not just astonishing city views and luscious wilderness that can be enjoyed in Bukhansan mountain range. Tucked away in the middle of the park is a rich burst of Buddhist colour - lotus lanterns adorned with wishes and prayers."
Gea Vlak: "These are Christmas decorations in the Marikenstraat in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. I was struck by the beauty of the scene, having just returned from Australia to enjoy my hometown."
Claire Goodbody: "Street decorations in central London at Christmas."
Charlie Butterworth: "My family always enjoy decorating our tree with miniature ornaments like this wooden one. It really makes the Christmas season come alive."
