Chains of lights are a popular choice at Christmas time. You can opt for incandescent LED lamps, bulbs or various wireless options. You always want to look for energy efficient choices. In the past such lights were considered a fire hazard but nowadays this risk has been greatly reduced and as long as you buy a reputable brand safety should not be a major concern. Another advantage of LED lighting for your Christmas tree is that the colors can be selected to match the theme you have chosen and can also alternate between colors. This could be lights that slowly change from one color to the next or lights where you select the color of your choice from a dial. Always remember, lights can be dangerous if they are poor quality items, reliable products are marked with "GS" and "VDE" on the packaging. Will you put fairy lights on your Christmas tree?

A string may consist of 50, 100 or 150 lights. For a natural looking tree you want to get a string of around 100 lights. More makes a brighter tree but less than this creates the need for more lighting in the room, so a subtle well lit glow can be achieved with this number. To create balanced lighting you need 2-3 channels. Small lamps, however, may offer more flexibility. Before you start decorating, you have to insert the plug into the socket once to check if the lights work. As the Christmas tree is wider in the lower part, you should bear this in mind as you distribute and space your lights. Plan how you are going to space your lights out first, this will save you a lot of time correcting and redoing the work.

Twinkling lights have a magical effect on a room. Traditionally these sparkling fairy lights are draped around the tree. You can also use them to divide the tree into sections if this is the look you want to go for. When you use divided sections you can accentuate the triangular shape of the tree, this type of decoration is also easier to remove if this is a concern for you. Chaotic lighting design with the lights strewn everywhere is not recommended and doesn't create much visual appeal, leave room for balls, ribbons, garlands.

The lights look great in the front yard or at the back of the house.
