6 Fun Ways You Can Celebrate National Christmas Lights Day
String Up Your Lights on December 1st!
Before electric Christmas lights were invented, people used to balance candles on their Christmas trees as decorations. While this indeed brightened up their homes during the holiday season, it was an unsafe practice that led to several house fires.
The invention of electric Christmas lights by Thomas Edison in 1880 allowed people to decorate and light up their Christmas trees without the risk of starting house fires. However, because of people’s distrust of electricity and the high cost of the decorative lights, the idea of using electric Christmas lights didn’t become popular until several decades later.
In the 1960s, Americans eventually started using Christmas lights to illuminate their trees after getting assurances that the lights were safe to use. Large-scale production and affordable prices made the lights more available to people of all classes. Since then, these festive lights have become an integral part of our holiday celebrations.
In appreciation of how much beauty Christmas lights have brought to our holidays, we have dedicated a day for it — National Christmas Lights Day on December 1st. Breast Cancer Car Donations presents six fun ways of celebrating this special day:
