The list of positives for this is a mile long!
Decorating with Christmas lights on trees became popular back in the early 20th century. By the mid 20th century, the lights and decorations hit the streets and buildings. It became very popular to put the lights on your home. Why were people doing this? That question was easy. It was done because it was fun and it brought attention to spread the word about Jesus. The Christmas lights symbolized Jesus as being the light of the world.
The lights have since added a lot more benefits to being put all over your home or business. When adding lights to your home, you join the large population of homeowners that do this. Your competitive nature comes out and you want to have the best lights in town. It can become a new hobby for you and give a lot back to the community at the same time. When you put up lights on your home, you add a great amount of fulfillment to your community. One of the most fun things to do around Christmas time is to get the whole family in the car and drive around to look at lights. It brings the family closer together making new memories each year.
As a business owner, if you are not currently decorating your business from top to bottom for Christmas, you are missing out on a tremendous amount of sales. When customers begin shopping at Christmas time, they always look for the most well lit and decorated stores to visit. The lights on the front of a building say that a business is willing to put in the extra effort to attract customers. As people, we are drawn to light and bright colors. The lights have proven to lighten the mood and generate more sales.
There are so many options available for lighting. Traditional Incandescent Christmas lighting has shown over the years to be the most popular style of lighting. This is the most cost effective option up front. LED light strings have taken off and become a very popular switch for businesses looking to save energy costs. LED’s can use up to 90% less energy than incandescent bulbs. Because they use so much less energy, they are also cool to the touch the entire time they are on. This is a huge advantage as well. They can be strung along anything without the worry of heat. Another great advantage to the LED string is its longevity.
A string of LED lights purchased from a high-quality manufacturer can last 75,000 hours. That is easily 7-8 seasons worth of lighting. RGB light strings are also available for the customer that wants to jump into another level of Christmas lighting. The effects and control you can have over RGB lights is something people have to see to understand. If you are looking to dazzle your customers, RGB Christmas lights are the way to go.
