Although almost your friends choose to use lights for their tree, there are other uses for them as well. You can decorate the outside of your home. This is the best outside home decoration in the Christmas day when you add some lights around your home. You can find Christmas lights that are designed for outside use from the internet or from your gift store.
Adding those lights outside your house will give a very good Christmas spirit, it will also send a message to your neighbors and this message will say "Merry Christmas". Don't use the lights for your Christmas tree only; use them for your house as well.
It is possible to buy Christmas lights with small light bulbs, as well as large ones. Traditional Christmas lights come with white color or with a combination of different colors. To make a good decoration for your home from the outside, I advice you to use lights with many colors like red, green, blue and of course the white lights. Lights for tree and for your house, it is the best decoration tool in the Christmas.
