What Outdoor Christmas Decoration Lights to use for the Holidays

Mar 20, 2008
Many families are having a great time decorating with Christmas lights. It is a good thing that Christmas decorations are no longer restricted to the indoors. With the availability of so many new products, the options for outdoor Christmas decorations are unlimited. And even with the same products there are enough variations to make every yard unique and different. And they bring so much enjoyment and Christmas spirit to neighbors and passers-by.

A simple, but elegant, Christmas decoration for outdoors is a couple of strings of lights draped around the house. Santa Claus has become a common outdoor Christmas decoration also, configured many different ways. You may come across a Santa Claus figurine with a sleigh in the yard or even on top of a roof. This is a cute sight and easy to set up. On a regular basis, you will find reindeer in front of the sleigh to make the Christmas decoration even more festive.

For those celebrating the religious aspect of Christmas, a nativity scene is a meaningful Christmas decoration. Light outdoor nativity scenes carefully as to not create a fire hazard. In addition, a cross can be displayed as well. Angels also offer another religious decoration to add to your display without deviating from the theme originally established.

If you are up for it, you can also go with an animated display, where the Christmas decoration has lights that blink on and off in different areas to create the suggestion of movement. Or you can go with three dimensional figurines that can move their head or limb, back and forth, powered by a small motor. Another option is the use of different colors. You could e.g. use green and red to suggest a Christmas tree with ornaments, or a green and blue to mimic a yard with a blue sky. Clearly, the options here are unlimited.

One can also use rope-style Christmas lights to light up the driveway or an object near the house. Preferably, these rope-style lights all have different colors. This simple gesture can get you into the Christmas spirit with very little effort.

There are many other materials that can aid you to make your outdoor Christmas decorations as festive as humanly possible. E.g. you can shape wire into the object you would like to project. A few lights attached to the frame will make it look great, especially if the lights are colored. A wooden sculpture, painted and decorated with one or a few lights, will make for a very festive Christmas decoration.

Outdoor Christmas decoration lights can be a great joy to all that are close to your heart. This article clearly shows the many options you have to decorate your house and lawn and to provide true Christmas joy to all your friends and neighbors.
