Christmas lighting, a key element on these dates
Why has lighting become an essential part of Christmas? In many cultures, light has always been a symbol of hope, so it is no surprise that it is so ingrained in our Christmas traditions .
Furthermore, we celebrate Christmas in the middle of winter, when the days are shorter. Christmas lighting is a good way to counteract the darkness of this time of year and evoke the atmosphere of warmth and joy that any type of party deserves.
The custom of decorating the streets and shop windows of the city with lights at Christmas is, in fact, one of the most exciting moments of these dates: the switching on of the Christmas lights. Little by little, the tradition has also reached homes, where we spend a large part of the holidays with our loved ones.

Light up your living room for Christmas meals
The living room is going to be one of the most visited rooms, keep this in mind when putting up the Christmas lights in your home! At dinners, it will be time to turn off the ceiling lamps and opt for other indirect lights to create a different atmosphere.
