It used to be Christmas lights were plain light bulbs, small, colored and blinking or non-blinking . I started to put up my lights, the ones inside the house have been hanging since last Christmas hehe. So I saw these cute bell shaped lights that blink with different speed and sequence . Just like the big star-shaped one I also have hanging.
It is kind of early but sometimes I let them be lighted just for an hour, like around 8-9pm when it is dark. When December comes I might let it stay lighted 1 1/2 hours and more when Christmas is near.
These are the star-shaped ones also blinking with different speed and sequence. this goes around my balcony .
