    The Christmas Tree is lit up OR is shining?

    After the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony people in my country would say (word by word translation): Christmas Tree is shining/burning now
    How to say it correctly in English? I have found the sentence "The Christmas Tree is lit up", but it is not exactly the same meaning, isn't it?

    The Christmas tree lights are on.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yura, there is no need to write a new post just to say "Thank you". It makes us think there is new information or a follow-up question and we spend time opening the thread. Simply click on the "Thank" button at the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful.
