Why are there so many lights at Christmas? Where did that tradition come from?

Key Points:

  • God was the first one to hang a light on Christmas.
  • The first Christmas tree lights were candles.
  • Thomas Edison was the first to string lights on Christmas trees.
  • Today, men battle with lights at Christmas every year. Putting up Christmas lights is hard work!
  • Jesus is the true light at Christmas.

Memory Verse:

John 12:46 (NIRV) I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the dark.
