In my opinion, the holiday season doesn't officially begin until you see your first Christmas light display. That's when you know it's time to break out your festive sweater, stream your favorite Christmas playlist, and take a long walk around the neighborhood to admire the beautiful lights. Personally, I love the houses that go all-out like they're the Griswolds from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. If you're in the same boat as me, be sure to snap a few pics and pair them with funny Christmas light puns when you post on Instagram.

Your family may have a tradition of walking around your neighborhood to see everyone's Christmas lights and decorations. If you don't, you need to add it to your holiday to-do list ASAP. First things first: Bundle up and prep a thermos of hot chocolate for your stroll. When you spot a house you need to capture, take a sippin' selfie with the lights in the background. You may also be out and about in town, shopping for your friends and family when you see a pretty holiday light display. Stop, snap a pic, and light up the ‘Gram with your brilliant light puns (see what I did there?).

When you're ready to post your photos to Instagram, you'll want the ultimate light puns as captions to pair with it, especially when you want to show your feed just how lit your neighborhood is.
