Coeur D”Alene Lights

Every year Coeur D’Alene, Idaho puts up more than 1.5 million lights for Christmas. It’s quite the tourist attraction, and the resort even offers viewing tours on cruise ships. It’s an interesting sight with the park trees bundled up in lights during the winter.

    ‘Twas the night before a non-denominational winter holiday, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

    Path and step lights illuminate your traffic areas and a well-lit home helps to discourage any unwelcome visitors to your home at night.

    Whether it’s Rudolph, an elf, or even a Christmas pudding, your children will love getting their faces painted as a festive character at Climbers and Creepers, Kew’s indoor play area. 10.30am to 3.30pm daily (£4 per face, £7 for two).

    The festival is observed by the kindling of the lights of a unique candelabrum, the nine-branched menorah or hanukiah, one additional light on each night of the holiday, progressing to eight on the final night. An extra light called a shamash (Hebrew: שמש, “attendant” or “sexton”) is also lit each night for the purpose of lighting the others, and is given a distinct location, usually above or below the rest. The shamash symbolically supplies light that may be used.

    Tip for tall trees: Remove the roller from a painter’s pole . String your lights on the metal bracket and use it to place the lights on the tree. You will be able to string the lights on a 10- to 15-foot-tall tree (depending on your height, of course) without a ladder.
