Everyone loves to decorate their homes, both inside and outside for Christmas and Xmas lights are the brightest and cheeriest means of achieving this.
Christmas tree lights come in colours, shapes and lights inside shapes to decorate the centre piece of every home in December.
There are some fantastic lights available for outdoors such as ones that appear as icicles dropping like jewels from the room or lights in the shape of a ladder to allow Santa to climb the roof and come down the chimney to leave his gifts for the children of the house. There are great shapes to place in windows giving an appearance of seasonal cheer to those who pass by.
LED lights are much more economical with power usage and in turn cheaper to run. Choose between flashing lights, ones with a lighting sequence or ones that remain on all the time. They are available in single colours on multi-coloured and you can drape different types on the tree to give a continuous lighting effect, with colour and sequence.
Christmas lights are the delight of every child and young children should never be left unsupervised with them as they are very likely to want to taste them or do any one of a list of dangerous things with them.
Nativity sets are also available with lights and make the story of Christmas more tangible for young children.
Make Safety your First Concern when Choosing Christmas Lights
Just ensure all outdoor lights are waterproof and both outdoor and indoor lights are out of reach of little fingers and are safe to use – carrying the CE mark. Unplug all lights before going to bed just in case they overheat and cause a fire overnight.
Under no circumstances should you tamper with Christmas lights to ‘fix’ them. In the interests of safety, if they are not working, either used a qualified electrician to repair them or dispose of them in a designated manner.
