National Flashlight Day
In the United States, flashlights are a key tool to see the path we take in the dark. They are essential for keeping an eye on dangers along the way or helping us return to the point we started from. Today, we will be looking at the history behind National Flashlight Day. Let’s grab our flashlights to go digging in the cave of history! A flashlight is a portable battery-powered light source. It is also known as a torch in North America. The invention of the dry cell, miniature incandescent light bulbs and the dry cell made it possible to create the first battery-powered flashlights around 1899. The first dry cell battery was created in 1887. It was made of an electrolyte paste, which is a different material than other batteries. This battery was safe because it didn’t spill or break easily, and can be used in any orientation. It was 1896 when the first mass-produced dry cells were produced. One way is to get a group of friends together and hide in thick woods behind your home. The other option is to build a fort out of a box. In each corner, make a hole large enough to hold the flashlights in place. There are many ways to celebrate National Flashlight Day. Your ideas can lighten the world!
