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.
Third, get the right kind of Christmas Candle for your candle holders.
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.
When thinking about the perfect holiday lighting for the holidays, consider using EL Wire and LED Lights to replace those drab incandescent bulbs that cause a fire hazard and waste electricity. Their colors have been around for such a long time, that no one seems to notice them anymore. LED Lights come in a beautiful array of colors and have a low operating voltage. Now when you string the lights around the corporate tree, there is no reason to believe you may burn the office down. EL Wire is a new game changer for the holidays, as it comes in 10 gorgeous colors, and has a cool operating temperature. It runs off of a high frequency inverter, and uses the equivalent power as about 1/10 of a string of incandescent Christmas lights. Installing EL Wire is easier than Garland, as it hangs very easily, can wrap it around desks, or even drape over the fireplace for a new Yule time decoration. Some people even wrap EL Wire around the tree for an exotic look that most people havent seen before.
