Christmas Tree Lights

Wonder of Christmas tree lights

Christmas tree lights are by far the most anticipated lights included with anyone's home Christmas décor, and there are tons of ways you can put them on the tree in order to delight family and guests.

I've always included the usual string Christmas lights - both blinking and non-blinking - as a foundation, and then add other varieties to really make it stand out. For example, some years I'll include Christmas bubble lights as part of the Christmas tree lights, or some other lights that are unique, like blinking music lights and other such fun stuff.

You have to be careful not to overdue it, but when done in the right way it really captures the attention of visitors, and brings great delight and enjoyment to everyone who sees them.

With that in mind, I've put together some photos you can look at of a variety of Christmas trees with different light themes to give you some ideas that would inspire and generate some thoughts for your Christmas tree lights.

There are also included some shots of Christmas trees from around the world, including some national trees.

Unique Christmas Tree from Dubai

This particular and unusual Christmas tree was taken in a Dubai mall and is very interesting and different from most. The mixture of yellow lights and the reddish hues accompanying the tree are pretty neat looking.

Home Christmas Tree Lights and Decorations

I wasn't going to leave out what most of us feel are a traditional looking Christmas tree with lights and decorations, and the one below fits that perfectly. The variety of lights and decorations reminds us of ways we decorate our trees.

The one below the first Christmas tree photo is also traditional and interesting. It was included in the mix because of the reflection behind in the window which shows the lights primarily without the rest. Nice! Oh, by the way, do you know what the decorations on the second tree below are? They are Mountain Dew cans. Take a second look to see. That's why the tree is so shiny up front and hard to see.

For the third photo down I enjoyed how the ribbons flow down the tree in the midst of the lights, and how those lights reflect off the shiny floor. Great look.

Christmas Tree at U.S. Capital

This is a recent Christmas tree placed at the U.S. capital. It's always amazing the number of lights and decorations used to fill these always huge trees.

A picture really doesn't do justice to how wide and tall this Christmas tree is. I've wondered sometimes how many individual decorations are put on this tree. I bet no one knows.

This Christmas tree and its lights belongs to Australia, and it's estimated that over 4 million Australians and/or visitors come to visit the newly chosen tree every year. I like those huge strands of yellow garland wrapped around the tree.

Favorite Christmas Tree Lights

After all those monster Christmas trees and Christmas tree lights, you would think I would pick one of them as my favorite. No way!. Below, with this fantastic outdoor Christmas tree covered with snow with the lights barely perceptible, is my favorite of all of the Christmas trees in this article. My only wish was that the photo had been taken at nighttime. That would have been an awesome display of Christmas tree lights reflecting on the snow on the tree.

What frigid part of the world is this tree located in? I'm not kidding when I say this is a photo of Christmas tree lights in England when they experienced a rare snow fall.
