Christmas lights (also called twinkle lights, holiday lights, mini lights or fairy lights), that are strands of electric lights used to decorate homes, public/commercial buildings and Christmas trees during the Christmas season are amongst the most recognized form of Christmas lighting. Christmas lights come in a dazzling array of configurations and colors. The small "midget" bulbs commonly known as fairy lights are also called Italian lights in some parts of the U.S., such as Chicago.

Cotton batting Christmas ornaments were popular during the years of the German Christmas toy and decoration boom at the turn of the century. They were exported in large numbers to the United States. These decorations suggested puffs of snow. Fruits and vegetables were popular subjects and often had a realistic appearance. African American and patriotic characters were fashioned for the American market. Some ornaments were used to hide boxes of candy.
A familiar pastime during the holiday season is to drive or walk around neighborhoods in the evening to see the lights displayed on and around other homes. While some homes have no lights, others may have incredibly ornate displays which require weeks to construct. A rare few have even made it to the Extreme Christmas TV specials shown on HGTV, at least one requiring a generator and another requiring separate electrical service to supply the amount of electrical power required. In Australia and New Zealand, chains of Christmas lights were quickly adopted as an effective way to provide ambient lighting to verandas, where cold beer is often served in the long hot summer evenings. Since the late twentieth century, increasingly elaborate Christmas lights have been displayed, and driving around between 8 and 10 p.m. to look at the lights has become a popular form of family entertainment. In some areas Christmas lighting even becomes a fierce competition, with town councils offering awards for the best decorated house, in other areas it is seen as a co-operative effort, with residents priding themselves on their street or their neighbourhood. The town of Lobethal, South Australia, in the Adelaide Hills, is famed for its extensive Christmas lighting displays and many residents go to great effort to put on the best light display in the town. Residents from the nearby city of Adelaide often drive up to the town to view them.
Meant to embody the ambiance of a snow-covered wood, cast in a moonlit glow, this Wisp Tree evokes a subtle, grace, not traditional of seasonal decoration. The fresh white, 5mm lights are small, yet emit a brilliant halo of light that surrounds the tree in an almost ethereal glow. Merely place a white base layer at the tree's trunk to create a truly magical, yet elegant winter scene.
Very pleasing effect. LEDs are cool-white. "Tail" effect suggests more comet than snowflakes, as does the speed. When first turned on, all tubes are 'in sync," but they drift apart over time, which is good, since random timing between tubes is more pleasing. Wire between tubes is about 13", so that is the maximum spacing when hung. Strings can be tied end-to-end. We are powering three strings using only one of the 5V power supplies that came with them. This is convenient, since AC power is needed only at one end of the group. No info on how many strings will run from a single power supply, but we can attest that at least three do. Still photos do not do them justice. Neither does my video, because they're much more impressive at night, but I wanted daylight ... full review
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. In the U.S., the traditional start of Christmas time is Thanksgiving. Major retailers put their seasonal decorations out for sale after back to school sales, while smaller niche Christmas Stores sell Christmas decorations year round.
