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.
The fit is crucial, so its not worth cutting corners or trying to substitute another kind of candle. The candle really has to be snug in the base of the holder for safety reasons. Birthday candles are too thin. Dining candles, tapers and many pyramid candles are too thick. Make sure you get genuine Christmas Tree Candles. Again, the best are from Germany.
I am publishing a series of articles covering the history of Christmas lights, practical tips, and information about lighting your tree with Christmas Candles. Be on the lookout for these articles. If you are interested in Christmas traditions or are thinking about \"going green\" this year, you will find them informative and useful.
One thing is clear: LED Christmas lights are huge energy savers. Thats a good thing. But virtue has its price. LED illumination has a different optical quality -- so different that some Christmas-lovers feel it is sterile and devoid of any warmth. LED-skeptic Christmas buffs who want to give their tree a real glow have been boxed in by a lack of choices -- but persistence pays in the end. There are a few sources that supply the original Christmas Tree Candles and traditional Christmas Tree Candle Holders, and people are beginning to tap them as an alternative.
Third, get the right kind of Christmas Candle for your candle holders.
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.
