WHY LIGHTS AT CHRISTMAS?
Jesus says, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” (John 8:12)
So the connection between Jesus and Christmas lights seems to be a natural one. Lighted stars has its origin in the Magi's guiding star to Bethlehem.
Wikipedia says, "The custom goes back to the use of candles to decorate the Christmas tree in Christian homes in early modern Germany. Christmas trees displayed publicly and illuminated with electric lights became popular in the early 20th century."
The Bible says: This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. (1 John 1:5)
