Fiber Optic Christmas Trees

By Angelina

Fiber optic Christmas trees offer you plenty of colors - even without electric lighting. This leaves more room for your other decorations. Christmas tree lighting cables usually get entangled. Leaving this off from your christmas tree saves you from the frustrating task of untangling christmas tree lights. The colors come out in spurts at the tips of the fiber optic christmas tree from fibers that are part of the branches.

The way in which the colors are displayed on a fiber optic Christmas tree has to do with the bottom of the tree. In the stand where you insert the tree there is a light. On top of that light is a disk with various colors. When you plug in the Christmas tree base there is a motor that will cause the disk to spin. There is a plan light bulb under the disk that the color is reflected from. This is how you will see the colors at the top of the Christmas tree.

It is important to make sure this is working before you insert the tree into the base and start to decorate the tree. You may have to reset the button on the side of the base. If you still donít get colors there is a small light bulb that may need to be replaced. This is a very simple process though and it can be completed in just a couple of minutes.

You do need to make sure you donít put presents directly under the motor of the fiber optic Christmas tree. There is a vent and fan at the bottom that keeps the entire mechanism from getting too hot. If you have a Christmas tree skirt or presents blocking it yours may get too hot. This can result in it not working properly.

Fiber optic Christmas trees come in many different sizes. They are very colorful and much easier than dealing with lights. They are more expensive than basic Christmas trees but not too much more than you will have to dig deep into your pockets to get one. Check out the displays of fiber optic Christmas trees at various retailers and you are sure to like what you see.
