We asked you to help to light up our streets and neighborhoods brighter than ever this holiday season, because we all need a light bright, twinkling cheer.

Then we encouraged you to submit photos of your holiday displays, and one luck person would win $500 from Metro by T-Mobile and 98.1.

Congratulations to Chad Thesing, the big $500 winner from all kinds of great display entries.
