The first electric Christmas lights debuted in the White House in 1895, thanks to President Grover Cleveland. The idea began to catch on, but the lights were expensive, so only the wealthiest of the wealthy could afford them at first. GE began to offer Christmas light kits in 1903. And starting around 1917, electric Christmas lights on strings began to make their way into department stores. Costs gradually dropped and the biggest marketer of holiday lights, a company called NOMA, was wildly successful as consumers began to snap up the new-fangled lights across the country.
Christmas season is here once again and you are coming to realize that its time to prepare yourself with the best means to make this a fantastic Christmas season, without having to spend a bunch of money. When people think of Christmas, the two most common topics that come to mind are presents and Christmas lights. Christmas lighting is one of the most important features to the season, however most people dont know how to decorate their home or office properly, adding the perfect lighting for each situation. Whatever your situation, you should ask yourself a few things while decorating for the holidays.
Virtue Has its Rewards
One thing is clear: LED Christmas lights are huge energy savers. Thats a good thing. But virtue has its price. LED illumination has a different optical quality -- so different that some Christmas-lovers feel it is sterile and devoid of any warmth. LED-skeptic Christmas buffs who want to give their tree a real glow have been boxed in by a lack of choices -- but persistence pays in the end. There are a few sources that supply the original Christmas Tree Candles and traditional Christmas Tree Candle Holders, and people are beginning to tap them as an alternative.
It all started with the simple Christmas candle, which is credited to Martin Luther who, legend says, came up with the Christmas tree in the 16th century. The Christmas tree survived quietly for centuries until electric Christmas tree lighting came on the scene in the early 1900s and, as they say, the rest is history.
Say the idea of an environmentally friendly, candle-powered Christmas tree appeals to you, and youve decided you \"wont take LED for an answer.\" You would like to get off the grid and go candle this year. Youll have to make a few choices - but the process of looking at the design options and figuring out what you like best is fun.
