Purpose:

Designed to decorate homes and trees during the holiday season, Christmas lights (aka fairy lights) are very popular during the holiday season.

Types:

Common types of lights are incandescent light bulbs, LEDs, fiber optics or in times of old - candles! Christmas lights can be animated using interrupter bulbs or electronically. LEDs provide a nice modern touch to a christmas tree, and are very safe. 

Some modern Christmas lights have covers over the bulbs and are themed: football, flowers, ducks, Guinness, cats etc. These lights are widely available on eBay.

Nowadays, Christmas lights are wired in parallel, which means that if one bulb goes the rest will still work.

Safety:

ALWAYS follow the manufacturer's safety restrictions. If you have questions, consult the manufacturer or an electrician.
