A Buyers Guide to Christmas Lights
Oh I need to start thinking about Christmas lights. We have put on a poor show these last few yars and my children have complained (a lot) about how fabulous other people s lights are compared to ours.
I know what they mean when they say they want more Christmas lights, they mean they want to see a lit up, multi-coloured, flashing Santa climbing down a chimney outside our house with galloping reindeer and more.
My OH is adamant they are not going to have this!
I think we might need to try a more subtle approach, to more Christmas lighting that nmeets with everyone’s approval.
House of Fraser have a lovely Christmas lights buying guide to lights that covers everything from the history of Christmas lights, to how to use them and how to store them, and how many you need for your tree.
This fab buyers guide explores the history of Christmas tree lights form the days when candles were used right up to the present. Do you know since the 1930s electric Christmas lights have been a standard part of festive decorating?
All House of Fraser lights can be used indoors or out, all the bulbs are LED so will last for years and the wires are thin enough to be threaded through windows and doors for ease of use.
White fairy lights are my favourite lights they are classic icy and serene. The kids like multi coloured lights of course – much more exciting in their mind!
I like to drape lights over the bannister and the mantel and just a string or two around the tree. I think they look so lovely that way. This year I am determined to have some on our front fence to light a path to the doorway.
How do you use Christmas lights and what are your plans this year?
