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.
First, you wont want to just melt the end of the candle and stick it on your Christmas tree (as Martin Luther is reported to have done). Youll need Holders for your Christmas Tree Candles. Find a source of good-quality traditional metal Candle Holders. And make sure theyre German - theyre the best.
Christmas Tree Candles are Kilowatt-Killers. You can feel good about using them because they dont draw a single watt of electricity. You can also pack them up with your other ornaments at the end of the season and use them again next year.

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.
