Order samples.  If you don’t have a great feel for how many lights to order – or if you’ll like the style or color, order a few strands and install them and see what they look like after dark.   Practice how you are going to wrap your trees and based on installing a set or two, you can roughly estimate how many lights you’ll need for the rest of your trees.

Christmas decor gifts are a thoughtful way to share the spirit of the season with your loved ones. Give all of your family members personalized stockings to hang over the fireplace, or use them as gift packaging for friends and co-workers. Skip the gift wrap and name tags and just stuff the stockings with some of their favorite snacks, games or personal items. Did someone in your life get married, buy a home or have a baby this year? Commemorate the moment with a personalized Christmas ornament that they can enjoy year after year during the holidays. If you need a quick and easy gift for co-workers, grab a holiday-themed coffee mug and fill it with all the fixings for a cup of soup, hot chocolate, coffee or tea.
“I bought three sets of these a while back and just ordered three more! I seriously spent hours on Amazon and other sites trying to find the best deal on string lights (length and bulb size versus price) and these do not disappoint. Glad I did my homework! I hung mine in my loft, and I get so many compliments on them. The lights are bright but definitely not too intense, and the bulbs are fairly durable.”
Displays of Christmas lights in public venues and on public buildings are a popular part of the annual celebration of Christmas, and may be set up by businesses or by local governments. The displays utilize Christmas lights in many ways, including decking towering Christmas trees in public squares, street trees and park trees, adorning lampposts and other such structures, decorating significant buildings such as town halls and department stores, and lighting up popular tourist attractions such as the Eiffel Tower and the Sydney Opera House. It is believed that the first outdoor public electric light Christmas Holiday display was organized by Fredrick Nash and the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce in Altadena, California, on Santa Rosa Avenue, called Christmas Tree Lane. Christmas Tree Lane in Altadena has been continuously lit except during WW2 since 1920. Annual displays in Regent Street and Oxford Street, London, date from 1954 and 1959 respectively.

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.

In east Tennessee, the cities of Chattanooga, Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg have light sculptures up all winter. Gatlinburg also has custom ones for Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day, while Pigeon Forge puts flowers on its tall lampposts for spring, and for winter has a steamboat and the famous picture of U.S. Marines Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima, in addition to the city's historic Old Mill.

From that point on, electrically illuminated Christmas trees, but only indoors, grew with mounting enthusiasm in the United States and elsewhere. San Diego in 1904, Appleton, Wisconsin in 1909, and New York City in 1912 were the first recorded instances of the use of Christmas lights outside.[15] McAdenville, North Carolina claims to have been the first in 1956.[16] The Library of Congress credits the town for inventing "the tradition of decorating evergreen trees with Christmas lights dates back to 1956 when the McAdenville Men's Club conceived of the idea of decorating a few trees around the McAdenville Community Center."[17] However, the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree has had "lights" since 1931, but did not have real electric lights until 1956.[18] Furthermore, Philadelphia's Christmas Light Show and Disney's Christmas Tree also began in 1956.[19][20] Though General Electric sponsored community lighting competitions during the 1920s, it would take until the mid-1950s for the use of such lights to be adopted by average households.
Jump up ^ "History of Christmas Trees". History. 2015. Retrieved 5 December 2015. Germany is credited with starting the Christmas tree tradition as we now know it in the 16th century when devout Christians brought decorated trees into their homes. Some built Christmas pyramids of wood and decorated them with evergreens and candles if wood was scarce. It is a widely held belief that Martin Luther, the 16th-century Protestant reformer, first added lighted candles to a tree.

This actually works really well - the only thing is I wish the cord was a bit longer. I had to use an additional extension cord. But it worked perfectly otherwise. Has survived through a couple of really rainy days here. There is an on/off switch on the back and you can set it to go on/off with many different times. I set it for dawn/dusk so it goes on at dusk and goes off at dawn. LOVE that feature - don't even have to think about my lights! And there are 6 different place to plug in your lights so you can have so many! I'll post a picture of all my lights that are plugged into it.

“We wanted to do a candy-cane column for the holidays, and finding solid-red LED strands that were as bright as our cool white lights was a challenge. There are tons of ‘fairy’ strands out there, but they are very dim when placed near normal LED strands and have a high failure rating outside in our experience. These lights are PERFECT! Very bright, solid construction. Highly recommend these lights!”

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.

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.

The illuminated Christmas tree became established in the United Kingdom during Queen Victoria's reign, and through emigration spread to North America and Australia. In her journal for Christmas Eve 1832, the delighted 13-year-old princess wrote, "After dinner.. we then went into the drawing-room near the dining-room. There were two large round tables on which were placed two trees hung with lights and sugar ornaments. All the presents being placed round the trees".[9] Until the availability of inexpensive electrical power in the early twentieth century, miniature candles were commonly (and in some cultures still are) used.
