I've realized this one might need a explanation on what it is.
So it's light out of focus, like when you take a blured picture on lights. A bit like this one http://tinyurl.com/nd9uwkr or http://tinyurl.com/kx6ggvy

So this one is suppose to be on winter/ xmas light decoration, and they are testing it/ setting them up.
Or it's just random lights outside, now that it's getting darker, be prepared for allot of colorful lights outdoors.

Thaught I'd explain it here since I can't come up with a name for the background that just explains it.

I like the idea, but I think its too vague. The rainbow doesn't look Christmas to me, but rather a phone background.

For example: yellow white lights with green would look like a tree, or green and red would be more generic christmas light colours.

[Maybe also think about how the pirate would be standing on the image, so it doesn't look like they are floating in rainbow orbs.]


For a name, that effect is called [Bokeh] .

Greylady: Just a nitpick: the very closest candycane on the left is being obscured by grass behind it.

So I tried to make it in red & green and green & yellow. It looks a bit more christmas-y.
Personaly like the rainbow more tho, was thinking more outside lights than xmas tree lights: http://tinyurl.com/k22cjbo
But I'll just enter both.
Thanks for the name, I've been looking for it :) The only thing I found was light flare, but It didn't seem that fitting.

Here's the final (I hope!) version. I fixed the candy cane (thanks Cattrin!), added a bit of snow to the door frame and window sill, and added frosted window panes to the window (thanks for the suggestions Oldwater).
