Many early Christmas bulbs were shaped to look like what they had replaced: the classic Christmas tree candle. The candle shape fell out of vogue, and in time new varieties shaped like glass balls, animals, lanterns and Santa figures hit the scene. A new and improved candle-shaped bubble light re-emerged later on in the 20th century. This one was filled with percolating colored liquid that cast a flickering light on the tree as the bulb grew warm. You can still occasionally find vintage bubble Christmas lights like these in flea markets or antique shops. Electric Christmas lights continued to hold sway into the 1980s.
Virtue Has its Rewards
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.
If LED Christmas lights are too soulless for you, but you dont want to go back to the energy-gobbling electric lights you grew up with, consider switching to traditional Christmas Tree Candles this year. Theyve been around for centuries -- much longer than the electric light. And theyre even greener than LED Christmas lights because they consume absolutely no electric power.
Finally, I know that you are interested in have peace of mind and the best way you can get it is having the sufficient discipline to stick it to your budget. It is good that you share with your family members your decisions so that they can be aware of that and it is going to help you to have more control of your finances.
