Christmas lights – we’ve all seen them and most of us have used them. When it comes to holiday lights, we often associate them with Christmas trees. While Christmas lights are most commonly used to decorate Christmas trees, if you’re planning on decorating your home for Christmas this year, take a look at what else Christmas lights can be used for. You’ll see that they can be used for a lot more than you may have originally thought.

What’s nice about using Christmas lights on your tree is that lights these days come in a number of different sizes, styles, and décor tastes. You can get them with small bulbs,large bulbs and specialty shapes; clear, white or colored.

Christmas lights work nicely on your tree, but there are other uses for them as well. They can be used to decorate the outside of your home. These lights, and your tree lights are available online or in most retail or hardware stores. Drug stores even carry their fair share. Icicle lights are particularly attractive for hanging from the eaves of the house. These Icicle lights are commonly sold in white or clear, with colored ones being less popular.  I’ve seen some, in the last couple of years, that the lights ‘race’ in, so they look like real icicles that are dripping.  I find them really nice.

In addition to decorating the outside of the outside of your home with Christmas lights, you can also decorate the trees outside of your home. With a few measurements and a bit of planning you can transform your yard into a magical winter wonderland by wrapping outdoor trees in lights! A number of homeowners, each year, decorate the trees outside their home, often exactly like their indoor Christmas tress. Decorating the small or large trees in your yard is a great way to bring a touch of Christmas to your neighborhood.

You can hang Christmas lights along the top of your walls, to bring extra Christmas spirit into the room that your Christmas tree is in, as well as other rooms.
