3 Best Ways to Spend Time with a Breast Cancer Patient on National Christmas Lights Day

The Christmas season is just around the corner and what better way to welcome it than by celebrating National Christmas Lights Day on the first day of December? Breast Cancer Car Donations shares the excitement of seeing everyone light up their houses, neighborhoods, and communities with fascinating Christmas lights displays. It’s also a great opportunity to spend quality time with a loved one who’s been diagnosed with cancer.


Where Did Christmas Lights Come From?

Did you know that before electric Christmas lights were invented, people used to balance candles on their Christmas trees to serve as lights? This was a very risky practice and it became the main cause of many house fires during those times. Eventually, Thomas Edison invented the incandescent light bulb in 1879, stringing a series of these bulbs outside his laboratory in Menlo Park, New Jersey to show off his invention to the public.

Since people didn’t trust yet the power of electricity at that time, they were skeptical about adapting Edison’s invention. It took several decades before the invention caught up with the public and families began using electric lights in their homes. In 1903, General Electric began selling pre-assembled kits of strung Christmas lights for families to use.

For Christians all over the world, Christmas lights symbolize the light that Jesus brings into people’s lives, especially during dark times.

Things You Can Do with Your Loved One

There’s just something about Christmas lights on a cold winter’s night that makes people happy – even those who are going through their breast cancer journey. Breast Cancer Car Donations shares the 3 best ways to spend time with a breast cancer patient on National Christmas Lights Day:

1. Walk around the neighborhood.

Looking at the Christmas lights around your neighborhood can be a relaxing activity. If you know a place known for displaying grand Christmas lights, check it out with your loved one. Just make sure to bring your coats in case it gets chilly outside.

2. Match with your neighbors.

If you want to create a big Christmas lights display, consider coordinating with your neighbors on a specific design. Work together with your loved one so that they will feel included, too. You can also decide on a color scheme, motif, or theme for uniformity.

3. Volunteer or donate.

The best activity you can do with your loved one is to volunteer to a charity that supports breast cancer patients. If your loved one had just undergone treatment and is still feeling a little weak, you can always opt to donate instead. Making a difference in the lives of others who are fighting the same battle as your loved one will make them feel that they’re not alone in this fight.

Donate Your Vehicle to Support a Worthy Cause

Did you know that once you donate to us a vehicle that you no longer use, we can turn it into a powerful tool that can help save the lives of individuals suffering from breast cancer? We at Breast Cancer Car Donations are in partnership with IRS-determined 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations that are working hard to provide life-saving assistance to uninsured and underserved breast cancer patients in communities throughout the United States. These nonprofits provide financial assistance, education, and access to medical facilities to aid in the early detection, treatment, and survival of breast cancer patients

While your donation will provide breast cancer patients and their families with the resources to fight the life-threatening disease, you, too, will benefit from your own charitable deed. You’ll get to enjoy our free towing services and our quick and convenient donation process where you don’t have to do any paperwork. On top of that, your donation will entitle you to receive a top tax deduction in the next tax season.

We accept almost all types of vehicles regardless of their age and condition. We also welcome vehicle donations anywhere in the United States since we have car donation programs in all 50 states.
