Show us your holiday lights

While an excess of holiday lights can be seen by some as excess power consumption, there are some options for those concerned about their impact on the environment and the safety of their home. For instance, there are power strips that do not 'leak' power when not turned on.  (GreenCupboards)

Residents of the Inland Northwest have been busily decking their halls, and we want to know all about it.

If you or your neighbors have a noteworthy holiday display this year, feel free to share the details with Spokesman-Review readers. Go to and click on the “Tell us about it” link. There, you’ll be asked to provide as specific an address as possible of the festive home, as well as a brief description of the display. We’ll need your contact information, too, but don’t worry – we’ll keep that information to ourselves.

We’ll publish a roundup of the decorated homes on Dec. 16 in the Today section, and post them at, where you can see all of the addresses, sort them by neighborhood or even create maps for your own personal tour.
