The holiday lighting custom goes back to the use of candles to decorate the your Christmas tree.  These were used in upper-class homes in and around 18th century Germany. It was not until the early 20th century that Christmas trees displayed publicly and illuminated with electric lights became popular. Outdoor lighting become popular by the mid-20th century. It was customary to display strings of electric lights along streets and on buildings with Christmas decorations detached from the Christmas tree itself. This was mostly department stores and the main streets in town. Generally, the main shopping hub. Here in the United States the popularity started to outline private homes with such Christmas lights in the cookie cutter housing they started building beginning in the 1960s. Now, it is common place for most people to decorate the inside and outside of their homes. Even trying to out do the neighbors from the year before. All in good fun of course.
