There is still time to plan a trip to see some of Nashville’s best holiday lighting!

outdoor holiday lighting by Outdoor Lighting PerspectivesPart of what make the holidays such a magical time of year is, of course, seeing all the houses in and around Nashville all aglow in their holiday splendor! Since many of us are still on holiday from work and school, now is the perfect time to grab the family and head out to see the enchantment of the holiday.

According to a recent article featured in StyleBlueprint some of the most festive residential holiday outdoor lighting displays of the season are closeby in Hillsboro West End (HWEN).  The article lists some of the most admirable displays to add to your “must see” list:

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville chosen to light the tree for Christmas at the Capitol for 4th consecutive year!

2015 Nashville capital tree is on the way

The excitement is mounting!

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is honored and proud to have been chosen to light the Tennessee state capitol Christmas tree this year! This will mark our 4th consecutive year in lighting the tree. This year’s tree and celebratory “tree lighting” in the capitol promises just as much magic and family fun as year’s past. Being involved in-depth with the festivities, we do not want to  convey any “spoilers” for the event, but thus far the plans are to feature ornaments along with lights in colors of gold, silver and red.This year’s Christmas tree came from James and Theresa Carter in Madison. It is a Norwood Spruce weighing 1,700 pounds and is 27′ wide & about 30′ feet high.

The annual tree lighting event is scheduled to take place Monday, November 30th, from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm CST. Governor Bill Haslam and his wife will be flipping the switch marking the beginning of TN holiday season in the capitol. The tree is located at the TN State Capitol at 600 Charlotte Ave., in beautiful Nashville, TN.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville hopes you and your family can attend this extraordinary event. To help get you in the spirit, here is a look back into the archives at the previous Christmas tree’s we have been proud to light at the capitol:

  • 2014 — Last year’s capitol  tree was adorned in over one mile of lights to illuminate this majestic tree via an 80 ft. articulated lift to ensure every light was placed in the perfect spot to shine brightest. We also topped off this beauty with a three-foot jeweled star as the finishing touch. 2014’s tree was a 55-foot Norway Spruce chosen from the Cumberland Forest, where the University of Tennessee uses roughly 8,000 acres of land for research.

  • 2013 — We chose a classic theme of red and gold for the 2013 capitol tree.

  • 2012 — The 2012 capitol tree was a majestic 30-foot Norway spruce moved to Nashville from state-owned land located in Arrington. We made sure the tree shone in its holiday best filled with over 6,000 LED lights and festive ornaments courtesy of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville.

Our design this year is very similar to the display we installed at last year’s event, including a mixture of classic C6 and C9 LED bulbs for nostalgia. We do have a few surprises in store for this year, but we can’t give away any spoilers just yet! The display will also be fully operable through a convenient wireless remote control.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville want to know when you take down your holiday decorations, and why?

3d lighted LED Star Wreath

For many families, the decided day to officially take down holiday decorations is more than just a casual activity to get the home organized while you have the time off from work. Sure, many of us decide to remove our holiday decor’ simply because we feel it is time this is especially the case when the New Year has begun as a way of paying homage to renewal and the coming year ahead. The question of when to take down Christmas decorations is answered by belief and tradition for many.

Some families take down everything Dec. 26, while others wait until after New Year’s Day. Notably, some also follow the 12 days of Christmas tradition — which means the first day of Christmas is Dec. 25, not Dec. 13, with decorations coming down on Three Kings Day, also referred to as the Epiphany, which is January 6th.

The 12 days of Christmas is based on the Bible story when the three kings, or wise men,— Balthasar, Caspar and Melchior — saw a bright star on the night Jesus was born. They followed it and, 12 days later, presented their gifts to the newborn. The day of Epiphany is Jan. 6, and cultures around the world celebrate on the night before or on that day. Many customs include taking down the Christmas tree as well as a treat for children as they are allowed to eat the goodies laden on the tree or underneath it.

Loveliest holiday lighting everAccording to an article in Huffington Post, taking down decorations at the right time is important. But, when is the right time? Here are some helpful guidelines to help make the task easier to figure out…

  • By the 2nd week of January, most people will have taken down their very Christmas related decorations. Indoor decorations like the tree and its ornaments should be taken down, and holiday specific outdoor decorations like inflatables can be stored as well.
  • By the end of January, most decorations should be stored away, especially greenery, which is most likely beginning to die and can become a fire hazard.
  • If you are really attached to your decor, you could let the red, white and silver decorations do double-duty for Valentine’s Day. However, this is really for indoor decorations where it’s not as easy to tell that you just left everything up.
  • So, what’s your plan this year? Take our poll and reply in the above comment section. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville would like to know when you and your family takes down the Christmas decorations and why?
