"This is what the Lord says: "Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, and ask where the good way is, and walk in it. You will find rest for your soul."
Jeremiah 6:16 NIV

who invented the first christmas lights?

Ever wonder who invented the first Christmas lights?

Good question, huh.

Well,  originally people trimmed their Christmas trees by placing burning candles on the limbs of the tree.  They were beautiful, but dangerous, so next to the tree, just in case, they kept buckets of water - yeah, they did

 

Finally, in 1895, Ralph Morris, a telephone company employee, got an idea. He noticed the string of lights that lit up the telephone switchboard and he thought, "Why not?" 

He took that string of lights and placed them on his tree. 

Wow! Very interesting. 

 

But, speaking of Christmas lights, let us not forget that first Christmas Light, that star God placed in the sky that first Christmas which lead the wise men to receive the first Christmas gift- the Christ Child.  Wow!
