Christmas Lights

Christmas Lights

Deck your halls with strings of lights and make your home shine bright this festive season. Whether it’s your Christmas tree wrapped around with a few strands of twinkling string lights or a well-lit porch, find lighting ideas to welcome the holidays. At Target, there are a lot of options for Christmas lights, from the type of lights to the kind of bulbs that’s perfect for you. If you’re looking for indoor lighting, pick string or fairy lights. These lights are available in both, LED and incandescent options, so you can pick one that suits your needs. LED lights give a bright glow and last longer than incandescent bulbs. Depending on your space choose from a wide range of bulbs, from big to mini lights. To make your outdoors Christmas-ready, hang icicle lights along the fence of your porch or backyard. Add stake lights or projector lights to create a whimsical outdoor setting that’s straight out of a fairy tale. Christmas lights are a quick and easy way to dress up your space to make it more warm and welcoming.

It’s that time of the year again! Christmas is just around the corner and it’s time to shine bright with the right Christmas lights. At Target, find a wide range of Christmas lights to choose from. Here’s a quick guide on how to pick the perfect Christmas lights to go with all your Christmas decorations.

LED and Incandescent Lights

First, you need to decide whether you want incandescent lights or LED lights. Both incandescent lights and LED lights come in a variety of colors and bulb shapes.

LED lights:

These light have a bright glow

They require less energy than incandescent bulbs

Can last 8+ Years

Incandescent lights:

These lights have a warm glow

Gives your space a more traditional look

Are less expensive than LEDs

Indoor and outdoor lights

Indoor Christmas lights have been tested to make sure they are not a fire hazard, while outdoor Christmas lights are made to withstand cold and wet conditions. Christmas pathway lights or outdoor snowflake lights can add a lovely festive look to your porch. Choose a lovely string light, mini lights or icicle lights to light up your staircase or mantel.

Choose the right lights for your Christmas tree

A great rule to follow is 100 lights for every vertical foot of tree. However, to create a stronger twinkling effect or for fuller trees with thick foliage, it is recommended to use 150 Christmas lights.

All the ways to get glowing

Choosing the right lights can sometimes be a challenge. Whether it’s for your porch or mantel, you are sure to find the right one. Pick from string lights, icicle lights, battery-operated lights, fairy lights, net lights, projector lighting and more. These lights can be stored and reused year after year.

So, go ahead and make your holiday season cheerful and bright!
