I know you’re wondering that this post is such an early post for Christmas. School opening is about to start this June and this coming Sunday is a celebration of Father’s day. While unboxing the remaining boxes that I still have since we moved-in to a new home more than a month ago, I found several things that reminds me of Christmas.
Aside from clothes, books, and toys which are the major stuff that can be found inside the boxes, there are also things for display such as certification frames, decorative figurines, collectibles, Santa’s hat, Christmas Lights, Etc. Seeing Santa’s hat and Christmas lights makes me think of decorating our new home of how I am going to prepare this 2014. Even before when we stayed from the previous house, I am normally the one who decorates the house. I noticed that even if you have a simple Christmas decorations what makes it look more wonderful are the Christmas lights. Why? It is because it makes the place brighter and the glow of each light amazes anyone who sees it especially the children. I am so happy to see when a kid approaches the Christmas decors with Christmas lights as it bedazzles them the moment it glows in different colors and designs. These beautiful Christmas lights are considerably fascinating.
From the photo above, I have collected six fascinating different designs of Christmas lights. These are typical Christmas lights, Icicle light, LED Christmas lights, Rope lights, Net lights, and Startlight Spheres. For energy-saving, nowadays most Christmas lights use LED which offers up to 90% energy savings over traditional lighting. These are rated for 200,000 hours, are built with near indestructible solid epoxy lenses and have rust proof, zinc coated lamp contacts.
Do you know the history of Christmas lights? Well, the history of electric Christmas lights begins with Thomas Edison during the Christmas season of 1880. He had invented the incandescent bulb the previous year and hung strings of electric lights outside his laboratory in Menlo Park, New Jersey. We are so thankful that great inventors like Thomas Edison contributed meaningful inventions in the history. It only shows that there is a brighter future for tomorrow making joyous celebrations.
