About Christmas Lights
You can tell when Christmas is right around the corner just by looking at the average residential street - they’re all decked out with Christmas lights! Join in on the festive fun with a choice or two from our Christmas lights category! Whether you’re looking for outdoor Christmas lights you can cover your house with, a few Christmas tree lights for your pine or a mixture of both, this is the category you want to peruse!
Let there be light (emitting diodes)!
Most of the lights you’ll find in this category are LED Christmas lights. Using LEDs for Christmas lights is a much better idea than old fashioned incandescent light bulbs for a variety of reasons. LED Christmas lights are often brighter than incandescent bulbs for one, and they’re more energy efficient, making them cheaper to run. If you invest in a set of solar Christmas lights, you won’t pay a penny extra on your electricity bills, as they run entirely from solar energy. They have to get enough sun though, so solar Christmas lights usually aren’t suitable for use as indoor Christmas lights.
What’s more, LED Christmas lights can be purchased in a range of colours, and some even change colour based on a pattern. You can find plenty of great Christmas lights in festive colours like red and green, but you can mix it up with lights in orange, blue and purple too. With the right combination of colours and DIY know how, you can create brilliant winter light sculptures!
Cluster vs string
Traditional Christmas lights are a set of small bulbs attached to a string-like length of wiring. Appropriately enough, these Christmas lights became known as string lights, and they’ve served us well for many yuletides. But there’s another kind of Christmas light out there: cluster lights!
Rather than being evenly placed like regular string lights, cluster lights are randomly placed in small groups (hence their name) to offer tiny pockets of luminance. This results in up to four times the number of lights per centimetre than regular string lights, and gives the lights a much brighter, fuller look.
If cluster lights are so bright, why would you want any other kind of light? Well, there’s such a thing as too bright. If you use cluster lights as Christmas tree lights you can overpower your other decorations. Small Christmas trees especially can be overexposed by clusters. Instead, cluster lights are best deployed as outdoor Christmas lights. Wind them through fences, lay them across gutters or hang them across the top of windows for a lovely effect.
