Christmas lights have been around since the 17th century and have withstood the time ever since. They first Christmas light displays were in Germany where Germans started the tradition of attaching lit candles to the branches of trees with pins made of melted wax. Lit candles were also placed in windows to let others know that it was a Christian home and a place of worship. The candles weren’t put out just for decoration, they also served the purpose to add light during the cold winter and without electricity it was very dark indeed. Because candles posed a fire hazard as time went on electric string lights hit the market in the 1880’s. Thomas Edison introduced the first outdoor electric lights in 1880. Then came incandescent lights that are well over 100 years old. The technology remains the same, but the sizes and shapes of the bulbs are always changing. LED lights have become popular over the past few years. They’re more energy efficient then incandescent and give off less heat.
Urban Christmas Lights Extravaganza
Christmas lights that light up the dark winter nights in December have come a long way. The candles of old have been replaced with outdoor displays that can be seen from miles away. People young and old look forward to seeing light displays every year. As Christmas nears each year it brings joy and a competitive spirit with people. Christmas lights make you feel cozy as soon as you start looking at them and the driver gets the short end of the stick when it comes to looking at them. There’s a big difference between driving around and looking at lights versus riding around and looking at them.
