When did pre-lit artificial Christmas trees catch on?

History of the Pre-Lit Christmas Tree

Christmas trees and Christmas lights have been around for quite some time. Trees were once decorated with candles to light them, which was a fire waiting to happen. After Christmas lights were introduced in the late 1800s, artificial lighting slowly caught on.

It wasn't until the 1900s that people began thinking about how to pre-light a tree and save time and effort when stringing lights on one. It took until the late 1900s for pre-lit artificial Christmas trees to be made. Since the late 1990s, pre lit artificial Christmas trees have caught on and are now incredibly popular.
