Christmas lights these days include electric bulbs, LED lights, battery operated lights, colour changing lights, dripping light icicles, garlands, globes, flood lights, luminaries, rope lights, mini lights, tree trunk lights, etc.  You get the picture - there are lots of light everywhere.  But where did the tradition of using lights during the Christmas season begin?

Did you know, that the first illuminated Christmas trees were lit with candles?  The pagan festival of the Winter solstice coincided with Christmas time.  The sun-worshipping pagans lit candles and bonfires at this time trying to encourage the sun's warmth and light to return after the cold, dark winter.

When the pagan holidays were Christianized, the candle-lighting tradition was included in Christmas customs.  The tradition, however, gained popularity after the 18th century.  Many well-to-do Protestant German homes decorated their trees with small candles.  Small clip-on candle holders attached to the tree branches, or sometimes the candles were attached with melted wax.  With the invention of the light bulb, also came illuminated Christmas lights.

There are many interpretations of what Christmas lights symbolize.  Some say they represent the stars in the sky the night Christ was born.  Some say they are reminded of the Star of Bethlehem.  The Gospel of John says that "Light has come into the world"  and Christ has said that "I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness". Some people say that Christmas lights represent the light that Jesus brings to the earth.  "Jesus, the Light of the world." (John 8:12)  "The Lord shall be thy everlasting light." (Isaiah 60:20) and "The Lord is my light and my salvation." (Psalm 27:1)

"Christmas can be celebrated
 in the school room 
with pine trees,
 tinsel and reindeers, 
but there must be 
no mention of the man 
whose birthday 
is being celebrated.  
One wonders how 
a teacher would answer 
if a student asked 
why it was called
Christmas."

~ Ronald Reagan ~

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"I will honour 
Christmas in my heart, 
and try to keep it 
all the year." 

~ Charles Dickens ~
