Christmas trees can be decorated with unique configuration of colors. We had different shaped bulbs in the past. The trend was to paint those bulbs in order to get various shades of lights. Glass ornaments were also designed in the similar manner. Metal reflectors were also in use for the next few years. Miniature lights had always been a very popular item for decorations. They can be either plastic or pure glass. Previously, Christmas trees were illuminated by candles. Modern lights are attractive but one must be sure about the rules of using them.
