Everyone Knows How to Change a Light Globe….Right?

Well not any more.

Some of the news light globes ere a little different and require a special technique to do it safely and effectively.

As with any light globe change you should always turn the switch off first. Never work with the light switch turned on. Then wait for the globe to cool down.

To find out how to change a 12V down light globe twist type fitting, which is the most common style in Australia today you can watch this video for simple instructions. If unsure call a professional.

Who Invented Electric Christmas Lights?

Thomas Edison and Edward Johnson (1880 &1882) and Albert Sadacca (1917).

Thomas Edison, a name we all know well for developing the first successful practical light bulb, created the very first strand of electric lights.

The strands of electric lights were strung around the outside of his laboratory during the Christmas season of 1880.

In 1882 Edward Johnson, Edison’s friend and business partner put together the very first string of electric Christmas tree lights.  80 red, white and blue bulbs were hung around his Christmas tree.  But what is more amazing is the tree actually revolved aswell.

These astonishing advancements were a little ahead of their time and it would take almost forty years for electric Christmas lights to become the tradition that we all know and love.
