What’s the Story of Christmas Lights?
Putting up Christmas lights are one of the first things that people plan during the holidays.
Every year, people dig them out or decorate their trees and homes with these colorful and cheery reminders of the festive season, depending on the latest trend. Christmas lights began their lives as candles. Then, wax or pins were used to secure the candles to the tree. The tradition started in Germany in the 17th century, and over the next 200 years or more, it became a well-established practice in Germany before spreading to other Eastern European countries.
The tradition began to lend light to the ornaments that were set on the Christmas tree. This practice continued until roughly 1900, when candleholders became popular, and people used them to hold candles to trees instead of wax or pins. The goal, on the other hand, remained the same. It aimed to illuminate and draw attention to the exquisite works of art that adorned the tree.
Glass balls and lanterns did not begin to replace candles on Christmas trees as the primary means of illuminating and beautifying these lovely symbols of Christmas with the public until approximately 1915. Then, with the development of the light bulb and electricity, the world of Christmas lights became genuinely excellent. The first Christmas tree that was equipped with modern electric lights was first seen by the public in New York, in 1882.
Edward Johnson, a friend of Thomas Edison, turned these on for the first time in history. The Christmas tree was decorated with lovely red, white, and blue lights, still popular today. It also resulted in producing the first string of Christmas lights, which could be mass-produced and sold around 1890. Of course, this was the beginning of the great custom of stringing Christmas lights around houses and trees to brighten and bring cheer to the holiday season.
President Grover Cleveland illuminated the first White House Christmas tree with electric lights in 1895.
Although the initial sets of Christmas lights were out of reach for most people, by 1900, several department stores were utilizing them to spice up their holiday displays and attract customers. Finally, however, in 1903, the American Eveready firm created the first Christmas light set.
The first sets were expensive, costing $12 for 24 lights (approximately $80.00 in today’s money), and were out of reach for most folks. However, a brilliant idea was born, and Christmas lights were made available for rent at a much lower cost, allowing them to be used by everyone to brighten up holiday displays in homes and businesses. GE designed and manufactured these lights. Clear, frosted, green, blue, purple, ruby, and opal were the seven colors available.
