Yep... he was looking for a great way to market his new invention... the light bulb... so he decided, in order to sell them, that he would tie them into holiday decorations...
Ah Thomas Edison.... the original holiday opportunist!
But whatever... He created christmas lights. Good for him. In fact below is a picture of the actual tree with his first lights on it....
Ready fot it!!! Its amazing.....
Thats the tree you chose?
Looks more like poison ivy?
But anyway...... after he created them.... and as the socio-economic landscape of the times dictated.... he then decided to ....
No one comes here to learn!
Just get to the stupid pictures Steve!!
Why am I talking to myself?
Uh... here we go.......
The Funny Christmas Lights Post. Enjoy!
|First up lets start with a couple pictures of houses absolutely covered in crazy Christmas lights..... Like this one....|
|And this one.....|
|And here..... Man this must take some serious work.|
And in a blog exclusive..... My brother Patrick uncovered a calendar of one of these O.C.D. Christmas Light People.......
Huh? I am kinda surprised he doesn't have "See A Christmas Light Therapist" anywhere on there! Whatever! Back to the lights.
Now....... perfectly decorated Christmas Lights are for much more than just One-Uping your neighbors..... right?
|They are for making those neighbors smile...|
|And for hopefully seducing those neighbors!|
|Their for letting the neighborhood in on "your kinda humor"....|
|Or for subtly sending them a message ..... about the ugly status of their lawn!?|
They are for all sorts of things. And the more digging I did I realized they are for all sorts of people!!!! For example....
|This nerd..... who enjoyed playing guitar hero on his garage... but with Christmas lights.. |
Hey its not like he had to go buy a gift for a girlfriend!
|And this guy... |
Who drove around with a Christmas light deer on his roof.
|Speaking of cars... what do you do when your headlights don't work..... Christmas Lights!|
|And this guy... who made a big ole cat sign out of lights... then sat back and watched as all the crazy neighborhood cat ladys came flocking to check it out.... |
As they came to check out his TRAP!
|You see he too collected lots of animals.... but his way!|
|Christmas lights are for Trekkies.....|
|And for proposing.... I guess?|
Awe..... That was nice.....
There are dangers with lights too!!!!!!!!!!
Man Im kinda hungry!!!
I could go for a sandwich!
I should add sandwiches to my christmas list....
Mmmmm! Sorry!!! Back to the lights.....
Lets finish off with some of the dangers that go along with Christmas lights....... shall we?
|Obviously christmas light plugs can be dangerous.,..|
|They can lead to fires|
|Just as the makers of this giant lit-up Santa found out!!|
|Or as Brian told his daughter ... "they burned Santa cause you were bad this year!!!"|
And that is pretty much it..... Enjoy your neighborhood Christmas lights everybody... like I intend to. And the next time you see that crazy Christmas light house
Take a second to think about the person who took the time to put them up...... and think about their January!
