Christmas Lights -- History
As the owner of a small company that sells a unique kind of traditional Christmas Tree Candle, I enjoy watching trends in Christmas decorations and seeing what kind of Christmas tree lights people buy. This little light looms large in Christmas lore. It has a long and fascinating history.
Installing EL Wire or LED Lights doesnt have to only be inside, as you can have the same great effect around your house, in the front bushes, and even around your front door. You can even take garden stakes and create a lit walkway right up to your front door. LED Lights and EL Wire have some huge benefits, one of which is now the price. In the past, these technologies were so expensive that only the elite could afford them. Now, just about anyone can afford these, not to mention help save on your electricity bill at the end of the month. Now hows that for the Holidays! Spruce up this holiday season with some tremendous lighting where it matters most.
Virtue Has its Rewards
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.
