What are Christmas Lights?

Christmas lights are decorative lighting used in the celebration of Christmas during the festive period. Once candles were lit to observe yuletide, later painted incandescent bulbs were fashionable, and now LED fairy lights are more common to decorate Christmas trees and homes at Christmas due to their lower energy usage.

2017 Christmas Décor Trends

Are you one of those people that stores your Christmas lights and decorations in the loft and dusts them off each year for another outing, or perhaps you're a Christmas fashionista, always updating your display according to this season's colours and trends? If it's the latter, then there are two themes to consider this year: Millennial Pink - which is fantastic for teaming with metallic accessories in rose gold or copper, and Country Living - crisp whites with fresh green foliage and natural wooden decorations.

Christmas Lights and the Celebration of Christmas

Christmas is now arguably as much a cultural celebration as it is a religious one. Some traditions are still very much tied to the commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ though, including the practice of putting up Christmas lights and decorations. Originally these were mostly based around the nativity, but more recent practices are often more generic, though red, gold and green are still the most common colours at Christmas, and these do have religious significance. Nowadays it’s hard to imagine a Christmas without wreaths and garlands, twinkling fairy lights and depictions of Santa, snowmen and reindeer. Lights have moved from the living room throughout the house and are increasingly used, along with various decorations, outdoors. Christmas trees became commonplace sometime in the 19th Century and it’s now rare to find a home without one.
