Dazzle lights for Christmas trees have been around for many years and are a popular addition to many holiday decorations. They add shimmer and shine to the tree and the brighter they are, the better. The use of dazzle lights for Christmas trees began in the 1930s when they were discovered by a man named W.C. Yeats who had recently invented light bulbs that gave off much more light than the old incandescent bulbs.
When his wife brought him these new lights, he began decorating his tree in the manner that he saw fit. He made all of the necessary arrangements, but one thing he forgot – the lights were not meant to be used for the entire tree! At first, he just put them along the edges to give the tree a beautiful look, but eventually, he realized that he needed something to actually bring the lights home with him.
So, he gathered up all of his tools and set out on a very special mission to find lights that would work well under the tree. It was not going to be easy – there were so many products on the market, each one promising to do something different. After some time, Yeats came upon the basic product that would work great – the Dazzle Light. It was simple – very clear, very colorful and would really enhance the tree.
He would go through department stores and ask for the best deals, but ultimately, the only place that he found was at a lighting store. It wasn’t until he went to purchase one that he realized just how much of a bargain he was getting. He was astonished at how cheap they would get! He wanted to buy one, so he went back to the lighting store and purchased three of these dazzle lights. He knew that he was getting something that was going to make the job of decorating his tree much easier.
The first thing that he did when he got home was to string some lights around the branches of the tree. Then he went on to string them along the walkway to his front door. And this is what really started the whole process. He wasn’t done yet. He had to figure out how to hang these lights without any assistance.
He picked up a book on how to wire trees and figured that he would have all of the supplies necessary. Well, he needed the right nuts and bolts, too. He purchased a magazine with wiring ideas. Most of these ideas were pretty awesome, actually. He put together enough wiring to hang four or five lights and connected them to a timer. The results were amazing – the lights worked – he was now going to be able to decorate the tree!
He took everything out of the box and assembled everything back together. When he turned it on for the first time, his wife could not believe how well everything looked – it looked like Christmas Lights just got cut into little cubes. Then she realized that he did know something about putting together small projects like this. So she told him she knew how to wire trees and asked him to explain a little bit more. It turns out that he actually had the right nuts and bolts and he did not need any helper to put these things together.
He showed off his creation to his friends and they were all impressed. He even received a visit from the boss of the local department store to tell him how well everything looked. His boss was impressed with how well thought out the lights were and he told him that he should ask to see his next Christmas lighting idea. Now he will definitely try that one next year. He says that he really likes to think outside the box and come up with new and creative ways to decorate the trees. He loves the fact that he is able to give back to the community and help the environment at the same time.
