  • Theres No Limt to Hanging Your Holiday Cheer

    In 1882, the first Christmas tree was lit by the use of electricity. Edward Johnson lit up a Christmas tree in New York City with eighty small electric light bulbs. It should be noted that Edward Johnson created the first string of electric Christmas lights that were then mass produced around 1890. By 1900, department stores started using the new Christmas lights for their Christmas displays. After that, literally, the sky was the limit. Such it is with a house in Pittsburg where over 210,000 lights are computer animated and synched to music. It took 3 months to hang the lights and over 6 months to do the computer programming.

    I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.
