You'd love to have electric candles shining in the windows, and you really want to illuminate your Christmas village. However, your electrical outlets are nowhere near your windows and you really hate the thought of having wires crisscrossing the artificial snow landscape of your village. So, you've been doing without lights to avoid the hassle of cords and wires. Before you spend another Christmas season in the dark, you may want to check out battery operated Christmas lights.
Let light shine safely from your windows with cordless battery operated candle lamps. These lamps will shine for hours on a single set of batteries. If you are worried about wasting batteries if you forget to turn off your candles, shop for models that are include a timer. You can set the candles so that they will automatically shut down after they light up the windows in the evening. They will automatically light up again the next evening.
Many accessories for miniature villages also run on batteries. This means you can set up a very realistic looking scene without having to fuss with wires, plugs and big, clunky looking adapters. You can shop for lights to decorate a miniature tree, street lamps and pre-decorated trees that shine brightly on battery power.
