Outdoor tree ornaments can make a huge difference in the look of your home. Fairy lights used to be mainly used as winter holiday decorations in the past, and can be used in any place in any season. They come in a variety of sizes and styles, from standard Christmas tree lights and white fairy lights to seasonal ornaments for holidays throughout the year. With the extra solar power and some backup batteries, you can keep lawn lighting even during a power outage—and get seasonal ornaments without increasing your electric bills.
Why lights at Christmas?
Long ago, Christians put a candle in their window to show their faith and encourage others to worship together. Perhaps it was an even older custom, like putting a candle in a window during a violent winter storm to guide travelers to a safe haven. Putting lights on an evergreen tree symbolized that Jesus of Nazareth had brought light into the world, and the tree showed that it was always green – just like the firs. However, candles on an evergreen tree were dangerous as the flames could ignite the resinous branches. Thomas Edison, the father of the electric lightbulb, created the first electric fairy lights – a safer way to light a tree.
Extended use for decorative lights
String lights are a quick and easy way to make a lawn more visible, identify pathways, or add a decorative effect. One of the most common is the tiny strings of white lights that can create works of art from deciduous trees shedding their leaves. However, as electric lamps have become cheaper and cheaper to manufacture and maintain, seasonal ornamental lights such as small pumpkins, hearts, or just about any shape desired have been created. Check out ten creative ways you can use lights here.
