Battery Christmas Lights Provide Safe and Easy Decorating


Technological Advances Have Improved the Popular Christmas Mini Lights

What could be better than stringing mini lights throughout your home and yard each Christmas to create a festive cheerful holiday for all to enjoy?  Technological advances make our lives much easier year after year, including advances with Christmas decorations.  Today’s mini lights have come a long way from those of previous years.  Electric, solar, or battery power sources are available today making mini lights even easier to use.  Most people are familiar with electric mini lights and being careful to not overload an electrical outlet.  Solar mini lights need direct sunlight and are best used in warmer climates that typically have longer sunlit days.  Battery Christmas mini lights are becoming more popular and are a great alternative to traditional mini lights.  The main advantages of battery mini lights are no cords, no timers, and cost-savings.  Without the need for messy, unsightly cords, creative uses of mini lights are endless.  Lighting holiday displays with battery operated mini lights becomes much easier without figuring out how to hide cords.  Another new hassle-free feature is an automatic timing system eliminating the need for traditional timers.  This new system remembers to turn on at the same time each day and shuts off after six hours.  All you need to do is pick a time, turn the mini lights on and they remember each day thereafter.  Cordless mini lights use only one set of batteries each season and low voltage LED Christmas mini lights save money when compared to classic mini lights that need standard electricity to operate.  The new cordless Christmas mini lights are a great value and an excellent way to add pizzazz to your holiday decorating.

Get Fired Up For Christmas With Creative Christmas Tree Lighting


Mix It Up A Bit This Year With New Festive Lighting Combinations 

For most people, the focal point of interior Christmas decor is the Christmas tree. But rather than getting caught in the same Christmas tree lighting rut this year, why not experiment a bit with new festive lighting combinations and/or options? You may like what you see!


Go Crazy With Cs…C7 C9

 Some people prefer to use traditional incandescent Christmas tree lighting products. The most common large incandescent options–C7 and C9 Christmas lights–feature a tapered shape and come in white as well as in several different colors and in frosted and clear varieties. Instead of selecting C7 Christmas lights or C9 Christmas lights in white this year, make a Christmas tree lighting plan that includes strings of colored bulbs–or a combination of strings with color and white bulbs if you prefer. Try frosted C7s and C9s if you’ve always gravitated towards clear ones, and vice versa. Another idea: C7 Christmas lights and C9 Christmas lights usually come in strands of 25 bulbs spaced about a foot apart, but 100-bulb and 1,000-bulb strings can now be found.


…And LEDs C7 LED

LED versions of C7 Christmas lights and C9 Christmas lights are becoming increasingly popular, too. While they are more expensive to purchase upfront, they do offer energy savings down the road. Even better, stores now feature a wide range of LED light strings with which you can exercise your creativity. Choose from miniatures, tapers, globes, and novelty Christmas lights.



The Novelty of It All

Speaking of novelty Christmas lights, these items can add another twist to any festive lighting design. Offered in incandescent and LED varieties, and in large and miniature sizes, are novelty Christmas lights that replicate everything from traditional icons, like Bethlehem stars and wrapped gifts, to sports equipment, carton/comic strip characters, miniature wrapped gifts, and popular foods and beverages. You may also want to experiment with combining different lights to create uniquely themed trees. For example, design a candy-themed Christmas tree lighting scheme using novelty Christmas lights that look like candy canes and other types of confections, topping it all off with alternating strands of red and white miniature lights for a candy-cane “finish”. Chili pepper, candy and grape novelty Christmas lights make a great food-themed tree, or use strings of basketball, soccer, football and other novelty Christmas lights in a sports motif to decorate a super sports-themed tree.

This Holiday Season, Let the Professionals Set Up Your Outdoor Christmas Decor

Outdoor Christmas Décor can be a Hassle
This Holoday Season Let the Professionals set up your outdoor christmas decorEvery year, as the holiday season approaches, millions of Americans arm themselves with ladders, lights and boxes of ornaments for the purpose of decorating their homes for Christmas. While some enjoy the work that goes into this process, many consider it a burden and may even opt to not decorate at all in order to spare themselves the trouble. But for a nominal fee, those who want their homes to exude holiday cheer without them having to put in the labor can hire decorating professionals to give their yards a look that will slow the pace of any passers-by.

“It’s obvious when a person has hired a professional to decorate their home or business,” said Robert Bralich, owner of the Christmas Décor franchises in SE Wisconsin. “The look is clearly superior, we use higher quality materials than the average person has access to and we work with our clients to design a look especially for them.” Bralich added that other benefits include freeing up the client’s time over the holiday season by not having to set up, take down and make periodic checks to ensure their lights are working properly. All of that is taken care of by his company. And for businesses, Bralich noted that employee and customer moral is at its highest when in a well-decorated environment.

“Plus,” said Bralich, “when a person attempts to decorate a home or business themselves it often comes across as tacky. More often than not, a person will over-do it with the lights to the point that you can see them from the moon. But when you hire professionals, your home or business is given a tactful shine that will grab the attention of anyone who sees it.”

These can range anywhere from traditional plastic Santa and snowman statues to inflatable Christmas-themed Simpsons characters and many more.
