No need to stop at one; with outdoor Christmas lights, let all your little lights shine, shine, shine for the world to see. The history of using lights to welcome the holidays dates back to the 18th century in Germany. Back then, upper-class citizens showed their affluence by lining their windows with candles and wrapping bright white lights around their magnificent Christmas trees. Dazzling lights proved a bit safer than burning and melting wax candles. The trend of stringing lights from windows and trees went viral; by the early 20th century, Americans lit up their homes for the holidays with lights. The popularity of lights led to increased production, giving consumers more choices and reduced costs. By the 1960s, outdoor Christmas lights appeared on bushes, porch railings, and trees in urban lawns and graced city lampposts and street signs. Today, this tradition remains just as popular, perhaps even moreso. You can join in on the holiday fun with colored lights, blinking lights, white lights, and vintage outdoor Christmas lights too. Make the experience even merrier with outdoor solar Christmas lights, powered by the sun, that reduce your electric consumption, soften your carbon footprint, and fill your home with holiday joy instead of bills. Look for festive lights on eBay, where reliable sellers offer a variety of new and used miniature, full-sized, rainbow colored, and crystal white lights for houses of all kinds. Then, choose a convenient shipping method to have your items arrive faster than the North Pole Express.
Use a good ladder when installing your lights. Secure them with insulated holders (never use tacks or nails). Don't install your lights on trees that come in contact with power lines. Before installing your Christmas lights, plug them in to make sure all of your bulbs are working. Make sure to turn your lights off when you leave or go to bed at night.

You can buy these in strands of 25 bulbs or larger strands of 100 bulbs. The 25-bulb strands can be connected together (daisy chained) up to a maximum of three strands; 100-bulb strands should be connected separately. Don't connect them together! The C7 and C9 strands use a standard screw-in candelabra base for easy bulb replacement. The strands are connected so if one bulb fails it only affects itself. Buying light strands with inner fuses is a great idea to prevent excess current on the strands.

A clear glass tube is heated over an open flame. It is then inserted into a mold. The glassblower then blows into the end of the tube. The glass expands to fill the mold. The glass takes on the shape of the mold. It is cooled. A silver nitrate solution is swirled about inside the ornament. This gives the ornament a silver glow. The outside of the ornament is painted or decorated with metal trims, paper clippings, etc.[11]
The positive thing is that most miniature bulbs have a shunt inside of them to keep the entire string of lights lit if a bulb filament burns out. The key is to quickly replace the burned-out bulb. The shunt will allow the rest of the lights to remain lit, but it will increase the voltage in the rest of the bulbs, reducing their lifetime. With miniatures, you get what you pay for, so get a quality set of lights, and don't connect more than three sets of strings.

Deciduous trees and posts are tempting targets for candy cane spirals of light. Get lights that are closely spaced, such as mini lights or rope lights. On trees, the bark is usually rough enough to hold light strings in place. You can give light strings a little support with strategically placed pushpins, but don’t drive in a bunch of screws or nails, as you could hurt the tree.

The first known electrically illuminated Christmas tree was the creation of Edward H. Johnson, an associate of inventor Thomas Edison. While he was vice president of the Edison Electric Light Company, a predecessor of today's Con Edison electric utility, he had Christmas tree light bulbs especially made for him. He proudly displayed his Christmas tree, which was hand-wired with 80 red, white and blue electric incandescent light bulbs the size of walnuts, on December 22, 1882 at his home on Fifth Avenue in New York City. Local newspapers ignored the story, seeing it as a publicity stunt. However, it was published by a Detroit newspaper reporter, and Johnson has become widely regarded as the Father of Electric Christmas Tree Lights. By 1900, businesses started stringing up Christmas lights behind their windows.[14] Christmas lights were too expensive for the average person; as such, electric Christmas lights did not become the majority replacement for candles until 1930.[15]

Christmas decorations are typically put up in late November or early December, usually to coincide with the start of Advent. In the UK, Christmas lights on the high street are generally switched on in November.[17] In the U.S., the traditional start of Christmas time is Thanksgiving.[18] Major retailers put their seasonal decorations out for sale after back to school sales, while smaller niche Christmas Stores sell Christmas decorations year round.[citation needed]
