Christmas season has been fascinating as everyone love to decorate their houses and trees with beautiful lights. I personally feel great joy to look at my Christmas tree on winter nights and admire the way i decorated it. But as an Electronics engineer i thought to make own lighting for my house and tree. Believe me if you make something from your own hands it will look more beautiful and doubles the joy when looking at it because you are eating the fruit of your own labor. I have compiled a list of some cool and simple led lighting circuit for christmas here which you could build easily at home. Before moving to the list i wish everyone “Merry Christmas” and may this occasion brings you abundant joy and harmony to your life.
The above circuit uses two simple components and LED’s to produce a twinkling effect. The IC 555 was used as an Astable Multivibrator and its output was fed into the IC 4040 Ripple counter. Read the full circuit description here.
LED CHRISTMAS LIGHT USING SIMPLE TRANSISTORS:
The above circuit uses two simple transistors which was wired in Astable mode of operation. Here both the transistors switches alternatively thereby producing square waves which in turn activate the LED’s connected through it achieving a attractive pattern of alternate lighting effect.

LIGHT ACTIVATED CHRISTMAS LED CIRCUIT:
The above circuit uses a single component IC CD4060 which is a very popular Binary counter. The LED’s are wired with the Binary counter to glow at different rates producing a beautiful pattern of lighting. Read the full circuit description here.
AUDIO ACTIVATED LED CHRISTMAS LIGHT FLASHER CIRCUIT:
The above lighting circuit was wired to get activated by means of Audio signal and uses the IC 4017 to produce different patterns. Read the full circuit description here.
CHRISTMAS LIGHT SEQUENCER CIRCUIT:
The above lighting circuit uses CD4016B and a Johnson Counter IC 4017 to produce the sequence lighting effect. Read the full circuit description here.
DANCING LED LIGHT CIRCUIT:
The above circuit uses IC 555 and Johnson counter IC 4017 to create a dancing pattern of LED lights and the speed of pattern can be varied. Read the full circuit description here.
All the above circuits are pretty simple to implement and can be easily done at home with some practice in soldering. Hope you love these circuit collections and am sure you will enjoy these lighting effects in your home.
