Christmas is everyone's favourite time of year for so many reasons. You get to spend time with family and friends that you don't see very often. You get to eat copious amounts of food and not feel bad about it until New Years' Eve. You also get to see the children's faces light up with excitement as they unwrap presents under the Christmas tree.

But preparing for the festive season requires a lot of time and effort, particularly when it comes to decorations like the Christmas lights which have had a full 12 months to work themselves into a mysterious knot for you to untangle. But don't get discouraged, a little inspiration can go a long way as you put the finishing touches on your Christmas decorations.

Here are some amazing ideas for Christmas lights to set your imagination alight!
