Do You Have Enough Lights for Your Christmas Tree?
The Christmas Tree is the most iconic symbol of the holiday. A truly amazing Christmas Tree will attract people near and far. A one of a kind panel tree from Temple Display will make sure your annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony will never be the same! Click here to check out Temple Display's panel trees.
If you are looking to replace or upgrade the lights on your existing tree you first need to choose your light style. Our styles include: C-7, C-9, or Mini Lights. Mini Lights are the smallest with C-7 next size up at 2" x .85" and C-9's at 3" x 1". Once you have chosen the style of light, now you need to decide if you want incandescent or LED bulbs. Every style light we carry can be lamped with either LED or incandescent bulbs. While incandescent bulbs have that timeless, nostalgic feel. LED bulbs are a great choice if you are looking to save energy and money.
Have no idea how to figure out for many lights you need for your specific Christmas Tree? Here is a little helpful calculation to see how many lights you need for your tree when using C-7's or C-9's. First, take the height of your tree x the width of the base x 3.5. So, if you have a 22 ft. tree with a 12 ft. base diameter, that would be 22 x 12=264 x 3.5 = 924 lights!! Have any further questions about lights for your Christmas Tree call us at 1-800-722-2501. We are here to answer any holiday decor questions.
