The tinsel is out, the Christmas lights are on, schools are breaking up and festive shopping is underway. How will you be celebrating the holidays?

Have you been decorating your tree and house? Are you celebrating other festivals at this time of year? Whatever your plans for the holiday season, we would like to see your pictures.

We plan to publish a selection of your photos in a gallery week commencing 17 December 2012.
