It’s WINTER! Time to Celebrate your FLASHLIGHT!

Leave a comment

Don’t be left in the dark on National Flashlight Day. The basic requirement  for this day, is a flashlight and good batteries. Flick the switch, and you can put anything into your spotlight. National Flashlight Day arrives on Winter Solstice, which is the shortest day – and longest night – of the year (see our post from earlier today). With all of those dark hours, your flashlight is apt to get a good workout.

You never know when you will need a flashlight. National Flashlight Day is a good day to make sure you and your family know where the flashlights are. Test each flashlight, to be sure the batteries are good. When in doubt, replace the batteries with new ones. It is also a good idea to put a flashlight in your car.

Did You Know? The flashlight was invented in 1898 by Joshua Lionel Cowen. However, this wasn’t his greatest invention. He also invented the Lionel train, many a young rail engineer-to-be’s  dream Christmas present back in the day!
