Replacing actual lit candles, the first electric Christmas tree lights are credited as to having been hung by the president of Thomas Edison’s company, Edward H. Johnson, in his home on New York City’s Upper East Side, back in 1882. Initially too costly for most families, by the early 1900s, Christmas lights were made safe and readily available to the masses. Since then, these light have taken on many different shapes, sizes and colors. Finally, in 1998, LED Christmas lights began popping up everywhere in America, and today, these energy-efficient bulbs remain the ideal lighting choice to keep your home lit-up through the entire season.
So, as we celebrate the holidays and look back on an eventful year for our company, we find a common theme – lights. By changing our name, we made it clear that we now offer an enormous selection of light bulbs; and with another holiday season, we again decorate our homes and businesses with festive lights.
Keeping in line with the spirit of illumination, below are 13 images from 13 famous holiday-themed movies, all depicting some sort of lighting display. From a famous cinematic explosion, to two romantic comedies starring Meg Ryan, to a movie with an actor named Bing, we hope you have fun identifying the photos you can scroll through on the left with the matching films listed on the right. Answers will be revealed in next week’s blog.
