Colored Icicle Lights
our selection of Icicle Lights.
you dreaming of a white Christmas? There are very few people who
aren’t, when it comes to the holiday season! People love to
foster the holiday spirit by stringing lights wherever possible
when December rolls around, and colored icicle lights are an ornamentation
growing in popularity!
Originally, clear Icicle lights were developed to simulate the
heartwarming scene of a white Christmas, for those areas in which
snow is rare. Today, you can find colored icicle lights in many
colors, including blue, green, and red. You can see them hung from
eaves, fences, railings, gutters, or the decks of homes and businesses.
Colored icicle lights are considered by some to be more versatile
than the clear type, since they aren’t specifically meant
to look like real icicles and are sold in any climate, for both
indoor and outdoor decorating. It doesn’t matter if snow isn’t
in the forecast; the breathtaking beauty of colored icicle lights
will always provide an added glow and festive spirit to your home
or office building.
You should keep a few things in mind while setting up your colored
If outlining the edges of your house, remember to attach colored
icicle lights not only from the roof, but also from windows and
valences to balance the appearance. Another tip from experienced
colored icicle light users and observers is to keep the string closer
together than the advertised length. Spreading out the set of colored
icicles to its max will look strange, so for the best lighting effect,
use a few feet less.
It’s extremely important to only use the colored icicle lights
specifically manufactured for outside use while you decorate outside.
Outdoor colored Icicle lights are more durable and designed for
wet weather than are indoor Christmas lights.
Hang your colored icicle lights outside where they are not hanging
near any overhead power lines leading to your house.
Both for the sake of your electric bill, and for the conservation
of energy, buy a timed photoelectric switch system. Whether mechanical
or digital, these are invaluable during the Christmas season. It’s
simple, just set the system to turn on the lights at dusk and off
at a pre-selected time. There’s no need for electricity to
be wasted during daylight hours! These timers are great both for
outdoor colored icicle lights and indoor lights, including those
on the Christmas tree!
Outdoor Christmas Lights
Choosing the best outdoor Christmas lights for your home has a lot
to do with the shape and appearance of the lot itself.
Putting up the Christmas lights doesn’t have to be such a
frustrating task when you know what to do.
Christmas lights are the most difficult to pick through after a
year’s worth of storage.
