It’s what Christmas lights do for me, they twinkle. I especially like the small, white lights on my tree or front porch, or in the wreaths that hang on our windows and doors. My husband, on the other hand, likes colored lights but tolerates my need for the holidays to be filled with all that twinkles. (Today’s thank you to him!)
I think white lights show off the tree and the ornaments better than anything else. Just take a look at this picture! Too much color would just compete with the many shapes and shades of what hangs on the branches or gets tucked further into the branch as a hidden treasure. Even after the tree is decorated, I like to go back and take a close look at what I’ve previously placed—moving things if necessary or because the mood has changed since it was first hung. I try to make sure that special ornaments have at least one of the twinkling whites nearby to draw attention to it.
My favorite thing about the Christmas season, twinkle lights! (By the way, as of today, there are 108 days until Christmas!)
