Merry Christmas from Direct Energy!

We wish you a Merry Christmas from all of us at Direct Energy! We hope you are having a wonderful day filled with love, family and friends!

We thought it’d be fun to share some facts about the holiday.

  • Germany made the first artificial Christmas tree. They were made of goose feathers and dyed green.
  • “It’s a Wonderful Life” appears on TV more often than any other holiday movie.
  • The song “Jingle Bells” was first written for Thanksgiving.
  • Each year 34-36 million Christmas trees are produced.

And, now some facts about the next big holiday, New Year’s Day!

  • New Year’s Day, January 1, marks the beginning of the Gregorian calendar.
  • It was first observed more than 4000 years ago in Babylon.
  • Black eyed peas are often consumed on January 1, for good luck in the new year.
  • The Times Square Ball is made of 32,256 Philips LUXEON LED lights.

Enjoy your holiday!
