We’ve all had THAT neighbor — the one who has blinky multi-colored lights covering their house before Thanksgiving dinner is even over. You know … the one who’s electric bill for the month of December must be truly astounding. Now’s their time to shine! Take a picture of your favorite holiday lights display — whether it’s of an enthusiastic neighbor’s decor, or the Christmas tree in Rock Center — and Instagram it using the hashtag #tcholidaylights.
