A Brief History of Christmas Lights

As we cozy up during the off-season, let’s take a magical journey into the captivating history of Christmas lights. At Indy Christmas Light Pro’s, we love everything about holiday illumination and are excited to share this beloved tradition’s fascinating evolution.

A Brief History of Christmas Lights

Origins of Christmas Lights

The enchanting story of Christmas lights began in the 17th century when candles were first used to adorn Christmas trees in Germany. Wealthy families would illuminate their trees with small wax candles, creating a shimmering spectacle that symbolized the starry night when Jesus was born.

The Electric Revolution

Fast forward to the late 19th century, when Thomas Edison, the father of electric lighting, introduced the world to the wonders of electricity. In 1880, Edison strung up the first electric Christmas lights outside his laboratory in New Jersey, sparking a revolution in holiday decorations.

The Twinkling Twenties

By the 1920s, electric Christmas lights became more affordable and widespread, gracing homes and city streets with twinkling displays. The invention of parallel wiring and safer bulbs made decorating safer and more dazzling than ever before.

Modern Marvels: LED Lights

In recent decades, light-emitting diode (LED) technology has transformed Christmas lighting. LED lights are energy-efficient, long-lasting, and available in a rainbow of colors, allowing for stunning displays while conserving electricity.
