How did Christmas lights become a holiday tradition?

Professional Christmas Lights Installers Ann Arbor
When you were a child, did you ever lie under your Christmas tree and gaze up at the lights?

Twinkling, glowing Christmas lights help bring magic to the holiday season. They’re a tradition going back to the first known lighting of candles on a Christmas tree hundreds of years ago. 

The modern tradition of stringing Christmas lights on the tree and our homes still gives us such a sense of peace and joy during the season. And for some, a friendly sense of competition with the neighbors. 

Have you ever wondered how Christmas lights became such an important Christmas tradition?

Safety Precautions to Take this Christmas

Lighting Installation Ann Arbor
Looking forward to hanging your Christmas lights this season?

Want to make sure you and your family stay safe while decorating?

Follow these tips to make sure decorating season goes smoothly this Christmas:

 

Make Sure Your Ladder is Safe to Use

Inspect your ladder before you use it – it may have not been used since last Christmas! Dry, fully intact rungs are what you’re looking for.

 

Don’t Overcrowd Your Outlets

You probably have many lights to hang, but that doesn’t mean they should all go into the same outlet. Too many plugs in one outlet can lead to a short circuit, causing a lot of unnecessary stress at the least, or a house fire at the worst!

Why We Decorate for Christmas

It’s December, and that means it’s time for ice skating, hot chocolate, and most importantly, Christmas. Before you go all out preparing for the most wonderful time of the year, knowing why we decorate can make it much more special.

Many Christmas lovers decorate due to nostalgia. Some of the best Christmas memories stem from childhood, when the magic of the holiday was at its most potent. Shopping for a tree and decorating with your family was something to look forward to every year. Recapturing that joy by starting new traditions can bring that special feeling back.


Sometimes, decorating for Christmas doesn’t need any other motivation besides looks! Created in the late 1800s, Christmas lights took decorating to a whole new level. While some take their display of decorations very seriously, enjoying competition with neighbors, others will casually cover their yards in lights. Sharing Christmas cheer to those in your neighborhood through decorating is a great way to celebrate the holiday season.

Early Origins of Christmas Decorations

It’s December, and that means it’s time for ice skating, hot chocolate, and most importantly, Christmas. Before you go all out preparing for the most wonderful time of the year, knowing why we decorate can make it much more special.

One of the first displays of this kind of decorating comes from ancient Rome, when Saturnalia, a December holiday honoring the agricultural god Saturn, was celebrated. Romans would take off from work and other duties and decorate their homes with wreaths and other greenery. This celebration also involved music, eating, socializing, and gift giving, and is the source of most of our current Christmas traditions.


While early Christians didn’t really support decorations, traditions changed over time, and the modern Christmas tree spreading through Europe between the 1500s and 1800s cemented their as part of the holiday. Nowadays, Christians’ decoration are motivated by faith, and are a reason to remember why Christmas is celebrated.
