"Who invented electric Christmas lights?"
A little fun history article on a common part of the holiday season from the Library of Congress; now next time a friend comments on a Christmas light display you can impress with your knowledge of their history :-) Pictured here is the National Christmas Tree in Washington D.C. in 1940.
