Winter Solstice(File Updated)
An inventive New Yorker finds a brilliant application for electric lights and becomes the first person to use them as Christmas tree decorations. Edward H. Johnson, who toiled for Thomas Edison's Illumination Company and later became a company vice president, used 80 small red, white and blue electric bulbs, strung together along a single power cord, to light the Christmas tree in his New York home. Some sources credit Edison himself with being the first to use electric lights as Christmas decorations, when he strung them around his laboratory in 1880. Sticking them on the tree was Johnson's idea, though. It was a mere three years after Edison had demonstrated that light bulbs were practical at all.
A Visit from St. Nicholas Google Videos
The poem A Visit from St. Nicholas, also known as "The Night Before Christmas" from its first line, was first published anonymously in the Troy, New York Sentinel on December 23, 1823, and was reprinted frequently thereafter with no name attached. Authorship was later attributed to Clement Clarke Moore. The poem was included in an anthology of his works, but his connection with the verses has been questioned by some. Henry Livingston, a New Yorker with Dutch roots, is the chief candidate for authorship if Moore did not write it.
