In 1946 Christmas tree

In 1946, Noma Electric Corporation, best-know maker of tree lights,
expanded into the year-round market with the acquisition of numerous
subsidiaries. Henri Sadacca stated, “Noma was born from a little Christmas
tree
light, just as General Electric Co. was born from a small incandescent
bulb.” Noma was a familiar name to many Americans as that name was
usually on the box which contained the string of Christmas tree lights used
from year to year to light their trees. Before the war, however, these lights
did become a great irritant if one light went out, the whole set went out
since they were wired in a series. Nevertheless, Noma played a major role
in developing the dependable Christmas tree string and also the circuit of
lights durable enough to use outside.
