After electricity became popular in every household people decorated their christmas tree’s with electric lights with the little screw in bulbs which was a big step up from candles that caused many house fires. Then after that it became popular to run an electric cord outside and put up those kind of lights around the outside of the house which was ok as long as you kept them out of the weather.Then finally light bulbs started to improve and they became weather resistant.
