Today, we expect to see the holiday season become illuminated with electric strings of light. But this isn’t how things have always been. So how did it all start?
With the holiday season right around the corner, we are all looking to celebrate the joyous season with colourful and festive decorations. The season feels special and intimate enough for some of us with just a minimal Christmas tree and some string lights in the living room. For many others, it is the perfect time to go all out on the decorations with a grand lighting scheme.
