Christmas lights are a way to enhance the Christmas spirit and get people excited to celebrate the season. Here are brilliant Christmas decorating ideas from Coachella Valley, California, to get you in the Christmas mood.

The lighting and holiday decorations tradition goes back to the old German custom of decorating a Christmas tree with candles. Candles and lanterns, carefully placed on the boughs, beautifully decorated holiday trees in Medieval times. Electric lights and later solar lights revolutionized Christmas lights and turned lighting designs into essential holiday decorations. Today Christmas lights make a wonderful and meaningful compliment to any Christmas decorations and inspire people to get creative with lighting ideas for their front yards and house exteriors.

Many Christmas lights have sophisticated control units allowing many programming functions so that a single string of lights can act in many different ways as flashing, twinkling, and chasing. Modern lighting designs bring snowflakes, icicles, and snowballs to the deserts. Extra lights compensate for the lack of snow. Contemporary Christmas lights brighten up the Candy Cane Lane and create fantastic winter-themed displays that welcome people and allow them to enjoy the splendid beauty of the season.
