Wreaths, garlands, and mistletoe are
just a few beautiful things we use to decorate our homes during the holiday
season. But nothing brightens
up this special time of year quite like holiday
lights. The bright twinkling
glow of warm lights makes everything feel more cozy and beautiful. Holiday
lights can vary from the delicate and dainty to the extreme and outrageous.
Most of all the beauty of the lights that shine during the holiday
season remind us of our childhood, and make us remember the spirit
of the season. Many people like to light up “faux candles” and
place them in the windows. Most of these small candles run on AA
batteries and use a small light bulb. The result is a beautiful effect
that looks just like real candle light shining from the windows. Not
to mention they are much safer than traditional
candles which can be a fire hazard. Of course, there are other fine
examples of holiday lights that
many of us recognize, like string lights. These small lights are hung
both inside on the Christmas
tree, and outside around the house to light up the neighborhood.
Holiday lights can be pretty, simple white lights or they can burst with
a rainbow of beautiful colors. Either way, they serve as a beacon of
celebration and togetherness.
Many people like to drive around and look at the lights that others have
put up to celebrate the season. It gives us all a sense of togetherness and
happiness. Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without the bright shining
lights that have been an American tradition for many years. They
put a big smile on our faces and a light in our hearts, showing us that
the joy of the season can be a shining beacon for all to see.
