Many early Christmas bulbs were shaped to look like what they had replaced: the classic Christmas tree candle. The candle shape fell out of vogue, and in time new varieties shaped like glass balls, animals, lanterns and Santa figures hit the scene. A new and improved candle-shaped bubble light re-emerged later on in the 20th century. This one was filled with percolating colored liquid that cast a flickering light on the tree as the bulb grew warm. You can still occasionally find vintage bubble Christmas lights like these in flea markets or antique shops. Electric Christmas lights continued to hold sway into the 1980s.
First, you wont want to just melt the end of the candle and stick it on your Christmas tree (as Martin Luther is reported to have done). Youll need Holders for your Christmas Tree Candles. Find a source of good-quality traditional metal Candle Holders. And make sure theyre German - theyre the best.
Installing EL Wire or LED Lights doesnt have to only be inside, as you can have the same great effect around your house, in the front bushes, and even around your front door. You can even take garden stakes and create a lit walkway right up to your front door. LED Lights and EL Wire have some huge benefits, one of which is now the price. In the past, these technologies were so expensive that only the elite could afford them. Now, just about anyone can afford these, not to mention help save on your electricity bill at the end of the month. Now hows that for the Holidays! Spruce up this holiday season with some tremendous lighting where it matters most.
When thinking about the perfect holiday lighting for the holidays, consider using EL Wire and LED Lights to replace those drab incandescent bulbs that cause a fire hazard and waste electricity. Their colors have been around for such a long time, that no one seems to notice them anymore. LED Lights come in a beautiful array of colors and have a low operating voltage. Now when you string the lights around the corporate tree, there is no reason to believe you may burn the office down. EL Wire is a new game changer for the holidays, as it comes in 10 gorgeous colors, and has a cool operating temperature. It runs off of a high frequency inverter, and uses the equivalent power as about 1/10 of a string of incandescent Christmas lights. Installing EL Wire is easier than Garland, as it hangs very easily, can wrap it around desks, or even drape over the fireplace for a new Yule time decoration. Some people even wrap EL Wire around the tree for an exotic look that most people havent seen before.
But the real payoff is aesthetic. The sight of a stately evergreen bathed in the soft light of Christmas candles is heart-stoppingly beautiful. Candlelight hushes the heart and casts a warm glow that electric Christmas lights and LED lights just cant match. Candle power has a way of capturing the Christmas Spirit and spreading it among your family, guests and friends who will be seeing your tree over the holidays. Granted, you have to be careful and use common sense (position the candles so the flame wont get close to anything and stay in the room). But the delight and magic of your candle-powered Christmas tree will last the entire season.
Christmas Tree Candles are Kilowatt-Killers. You can feel good about using them because they dont draw a single watt of electricity. You can also pack them up with your other ornaments at the end of the season and use them again next year.
