When I have saw the lights of Christmas, it a made me wonder where lights on trees and houses got started. In the 17th century people would use wax or pins to put candles on their trees. The trees did not last very long then, because people would be afraid of creating a fire hazard. With the invention of electricity an assistant of Thomas Edison (Edward Johnson) in 1882 created Christmas lights. One of the first trees was in New York City. Ed used 80 light bulbs on the first Christmas tree. As trends change over the years people eventually started to put lights on houses.
Christmas lights remind me of Jesus' birth as the light of the world. Jesus said in the book of John the ninth verse of chapter nine, "as long as I am in the world; I am the light of the world." When we go about our daily activities in this world, we need to let are light shine.
