lights are not just for Christmas anymore. Lights can be used to
spruce up any holiday or occasion. And the holiday lights that are
available today are more than just simple bulbs. They come in various
different shapes and sizes, adding a festive feel to the décor
of any home – indoors or out.
Halloween is an especially festive time to use holiday lights.
They can be used to add a bit of fright factor to your front porch
or to safely guide little trick-or-treaters to your door. Black
lights are a fun way to liven up your Halloween display. You can
even purchase blinking black lights to add more interest. Lights
with bulbs in the shape of jack-o-lanterns are also fun without
all of the fright. You can create your own Halloween light display
using creatively decorated jack-o-lanterns with candles inside of
Thanksgiving may be the day that you start putting out your Christmas
decorations, but holiday lights can add charm to your feast as well.
Using lights as a part of your Thanksgiving décor can add
a touch of class and elegance. White lights are particularly pretty
and graceful. For added delight, you can add these to your centerpiece
or buffet table.
Holiday lights can spice up your décor for any occasion.
Try using them for a special, romantic dinner for a new twist on
the candlelight dinner. This would make for a splendid evening on
Valentine’s Day or for an anniversary. You can also use lights
to liven up decorations for a party or event. Try adding them to
the buffet table or other displays to highlight a special attraction.
Of course, the Christmas season is filled with lights everywhere.
It is a favorite tradition of many to drive around looking at holiday
lights. There are so many different types of lights in all sorts
of colors available today. Multicolored, white, and blue are among
the many colors available. They also make icicle lights, frosted
lights and lights in the shape of round balls. Every year seems
to bring the availability of more types of holiday lights.
If you plan on using outdoor lights as a part of your holiday decorations,
make sure that you take the proper steps to weatherproof them. Outdoor
lights are bound to have times when they are not supervised and
this could lead to problems if it begins to rain or snow. First
make sure that the outlets you use are GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit
Interrupter) protected. Next, you will want to cover the outlets
with an in-use cover. An in-use cover is a hinged bubble with openings
on the bottom and a snap closure. The openings allow you to plug
your lights in and keep moisture out. These handy devices are available
at most hardware stores.
Whatever the occasion, holiday lights can add a measure of joy
to your celebration. They help to ring in the holidays and can add
spice and drama to your décor.
