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.
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.
Christmas Off the Grid
When it comes to Christmas decorating ideas, the consumer is awash in choices every year - mini Christmas lights, purple, red, blue or green LED Christmas lights, candle lights, old-fashioned Christmas tree lights with torpedo-shaped bulbs, LED Christmas light nets - the options are endless.
Christmas Lights -- History
Finally: Stay flexible. The advantage of Christmas tree candles is that they dont restrict your overall design or look. You can use them with other Christmas decorations - for example, your favorite vintage, antique or contemporary ornaments or tree toppers - or virtually any other decorations you have. If you want, you can even use electric lights and Christmas candles together.
