How can you help but be enchanted by the Christmas season? Homes are decorated with colorful lights that shine through the night. Christmas trees are adorned with treasured ornaments. Festively wrapped presents are gather under the tree, and the excitement of children is so palpable that you can feel it in the air. The days leading up to and following Christmas are unlike any other time of year.
Here at Petro LED, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you, your family, and all of your friends a very Merry Christmas. We hope that you have the chance to take some time off of work, to enjoy a delicious meal, and to spend some quality time with the ones that you love. Even if you do not celebrate Christmas, this is a wonderful time to relax, reflect, and reconnect.
Everyone has their own Christmas traditions, and there is no right or wrong way to celebrate the holiday. Some people make lasagna for dinner. Some people pack stockings full of gag gifts. There are even those that have an annual football game in the deep snow and freezing temperatures. Part of the charm of Christmas is that people create the celebration they most want to be a part of.
One constant that carries through many Christmas traditions, however, is the use of light. We drape our Christmas trees with them, put them in the trees in our front yard, and find them in the front windows of almost every business. For more than 300 years, light has been one of the primary symbols of Christmas.
The tradition began when people decorated their Christmas trees with actual wax candles. Once electric lights were invented, miniature Christmas tree bulbs began to be crafted, and new colors appeared. Now, every kind of light imaginable shines through the night around the Christmas season. People put up endless streams of twinkling lights, have glowing inflatable Santas in their front yard, and even use LED technology to put together elaborate Christmas spectacles.
Like the holiday itself, there is no right or wrong way to use light around Christmas. A single humble candle can be as affecting and meaningful as a shining winter wonderland. What matters is acknowledging the season with this powerful symbol of Christmas time hope.
It is our greatest hope that your holiday season is filled with light. All of us in the Petro LED family are excited about Christmas, and we bet that you are too. As the big day quickly approaches, make sure that you have your shopping done, all your decorations up, and some holiday cookies baking in the oven. Finally, and most importantly, we hope that you are surrounded by the people that you love. Christmas only comes once a year, so make the most of this magical time while you can. Merry Christmas to you from your friends at Petro LED.
