Christmas lights

Christmas lights are lights used for decoration around Christmas. The custom harks back to the use of candles to decorate the Christmas tree in upper-class homes in 18th-century Germany.

Christmas trees displayed publicly and illuminated with electric lights became popular in the early 20th century.

By the mid-20th century, it became customary to display strings of electric lights as Christmas decoration detached from the Christmas tree itself, along streets and buildings. In the United States, it became popular to outline private homes with such Christmas lights in tract housingbeginning in the 1960s.

By the late 20th century, the custom had also been adopted in non-western countries, notably in Japan.
