Christmas lights (also sometimes called fairy lights, twinkle lights or holiday lights in the United States) are strands of electric lights used to decorate homes, public/commercial buildings and Christmas trees during the Christmas season. 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.
Decorating homes with twinkling Christmas lights are very traditional. As years go by, more lighting decorations continue to get more and more elaborate. Our retail stores continue to amaze us each year with something new to add to our Christmas Lighting.
Growing up with Christmas Lights
I remember Mother and Daddy never missed decorating our home with Christmas Lights. One year it was all red. One year the house was all blue. One year it was multi colored and one year it was all white lights.
"I remember how I loved to go out in the yard at night and awe over how beautiful the house looked in the dark." "The twinckling lights were magical."
