I finally figured out how to take awesome pictures of Christmas lights like these:
For a Canon Rebel:
1. Set it on TV mode.
2. Turn the dial near the front until the shutter speed is set for 2 seconds. This lets more light into the camera giving the lights the twinkling look.
3. Use a tripod! Or in my case, I used a step stool. Anything to keep the camera super steady. Any slight movements will make the pictures blurry.
4. Ta da! Magical Christmas light pictures.
Here are some more great shots:
