Christmas lights are popular, not just as decoration on display at Christmas time, but throughout the whole Christmas season, displaying a variety of hues, themes, designs, and shapes. The tradition actually goes back much further when Christmas trees were first decorated with artificial candles, which was symbolic of Christ’s light illuminating the tree. As Christianity became more firmly rooted, the use of candles was gradually replaced by many other types of decoration, most often fruits and vegetables. However, many people still like to hang colorful lights during Christmas and are very fond of decorating their homes with these lights.
There are many reasons why people still like to decorate their homes with Christmas lights. Most Christians especially love to decorate their homes with colorful candles and mistletoes, either placed in their Christmas trees or hanging from their Christmas lights. These lights can be used as a form of decoration themselves, and some even add to the atmosphere of their homes by using colors and accents in their decorations. Some other Christians, who do not believe in the concept of God, still like to have colored candles and mistletoe hanging from their Christmas trees. These types of decorations make a nice addition to any home, whether it is a house that is already decorated or one that is being built.
For the most part, even non-believers enjoy the sight of Christmas lights on a holiday. A holiday light display can make a great impression on anyone, and many couples who decide to celebrate their first Christmas together choose to go out in their Christmas light display. Many new families have a Christmas light display in their front yard before the entire family leaves on Christmas morning. When everyone returns home after a day of shopping, dinner, and children playing in the snow, the entire family can gather around the Christmas light display, talk, and have a great time simply enjoying the holiday season. Most people who go out to a Christmas light display, end up coming back to their homes on Christmas day.
