I apologize in advance if this is already common knowledge but I did a quick google search of "Illumination Day" and I found this website:
I searched on wikipedia for the town Brant Rock Mass. that was mentioned on that website and the article I found informed me of this interesting
In January, 1906, Reginald Fessenden achieved the first two-way transatlantic radiotelegraph transmission, exchanging Morse code messages between his
stations in Brant Rock and Machrihanish, Scotland. (Marconi had only achieved one-way transmissions prior to his date). On Christmas Eve, December 24,
1906, Fessenden transmitted from Brant Rock Station the first audio radio broadcast of music and entertainment in history. Radio operators on ships in
the Atlantic heard a broadcast that included Fessenden playing the song O Holy Night on the violin and reading a passage from the Bible.

Illumination Parade and Radio/Telegraph Technology? It seems like to big of a coincidence to go un-investigated...
