Christmas is a festive occasion, which has been celebrated with great ceremony for many a year. It has always been associated with a feeling of rejuvenation and spiritual refinement; the time around this festive occasion is one where every heart is filled with the illuminating light of faith, hope and spirituality. The celebrations as well as the decoration which is universally seen during Christmas time also reflect this feeling. This is the reason why we use lights at Christmas; they are used to illuminate the whole world, doing away with the darkness and glom of misery.

As Christmas marks the glowing light of joy and happiness in the lights of one and all, a Christmas tree is suitable illuminated in order to bring it to reflect this inherent nature as well as belief of the festival. The present day Christmas season is a jam packed one where chores of tasks such as shopping, decoration, cleaning and cooking occupy the minds of the people. In such a busy atmosphere, it is tough to find time for illuminating the Christmas tree and this job of the Christmas tree illumination starts featuring down and down on the priorities list. If this is your own story at the time of Christmas, then there can be only one savior of your sanity with regards to the illumination of the Christmas tree- a prelit Christmas tree!

Apart from being easy on the time required for their set up, pre lit Christmas trees also provide the advantage of saving a considerable amount of cost. There are a host of reasons for such a choice. One of the main reasons is that since these prelit Christmas trees contain in-built lighting, it becomes easy to reduce the chances of any fire caused due to short circuits, as artificial Christmas trees are fire resistant. Apart from this, it is much easier to embed the lighting in artificial Christmas trees, as compared to natural Christmas trees.

People take many different approaches to Christmas tree lighting, and it all depends on what means the most to you and your family. Some opt for classic, multi-coloured strands of Christmas lights to embody the good cheer and joy of the season. Others may prefer to light their trees with solid colours: all red and all white are both very popular, and can give a simple, reflective tone to your Christmas dcor.

Other Christmas tree lights create a more distinct appearance: micro-bulbs add just a twinkle to the tree; berry lights evoke the tiny fruits of winter; and flickering cone lights provide the warm glow (but not the fire hazard) of traditional candles.Many Christmas tree lights are more than just lights, but rather incorporate Christmas lighting elements into other Christmas decorations, such as garlands and baubles. Some of the most stunning lights are clear glass balls with warm LED Christmas lights inside. These both adorn the tree and illuminate it, creating a stunningly sophisticated look that is right in step with the traditions of the holiday.

As far as storage is concerned, a prelit Christmas tree proves itself worthy as well. Once the Christmas season is over, the Christmas tree can be easily placed back into the original box and stacked into a remote corner of the attic, basement or cupboard. - 39969
