Cities adorn themselves with lights in this end of year, for Christmas and for the celebrations of the New Year, by using generally the symbolism of the Christmas tree, its balls and its stars.

Personally, I prefer to see our cities being richly illuminated in a precise place, for a strong festive symbol, rather than these miserable bright decorations were tense and distributed through the main avenues. Very often it does not bring much furthermore that what what proposes shop windows in celebration, for a spending of disproportionate fossil fuels with the profit which it can get in term of sentimental well-being.

 

This below the definition of the term Light extracts from the dictionary of Furetiere of 1690

LIGHT. Very subtle, quick and loose body which causes the lightness, which lights, which gives the color to any things, which returns visible objects. Colors are only a various reflection of light. God shed light the first day of the creation, and he made the Sun the fourth, which is the root, the father of the light ; it excess lives light dazzles eyes. During its eclipse it has only a low, dark and pale light. The Moon, Come and borrow of him their light.

Light, also says to itself all other lightness), so many of those who come from the fire, from the flame, the candles, the torches, that of some other natural bodies, or artificial, as the glow-worm, the rotten wood, the bad fish, the eyes of cat, and the stone of Boulogne, the phosphor soak the light in the daytime, and return it in the darkness.
There are Sacrifices where we switch off all the lights. The lively and strong light of the bright bodies published always whites. It is a necessary condition has the light to seem blue, to be intermittent. So the flame of the sulfur and that of the spirit of wine are blue. The rotten wood, the glow-worms, the scales of some sea fish throw lights which pul at the blue, because of the subtlety of the exhalations of some smelling salts, or some sulphurized materials which go out of it ; because it is not the switched on material, in cause that the water does not switch off it, that it does not waste away, and because it has no sensitive heat.
