Second, decide what kind of Christmas Tree Candle Holders will look best. This is simply a matter of taste. Theres no right or wrong. The classic Clip On Candle Holder is a popular solution. It clamps on to the branch and has a swivel mechanism so you can adjust it. The Clip-On Christmas Tree Candle Holder is usually available in silver or gold.
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.
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.
If LED Christmas lights are too soulless for you, but you dont want to go back to the energy-gobbling electric lights you grew up with, consider switching to traditional Christmas Tree Candles this year. Theyve been around for centuries -- much longer than the electric light. And theyre even greener than LED Christmas lights because they consume absolutely no electric power.
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.
