The first thing I noticed is how bright the new lights are (our whole living room is aglow)
The second thing I noticed is that they don’t get hot.
This is a huge bonus. No more worrying about:
- Ornaments being placed too close to the hot lights
- The kids accidentally burning themselves on the hot lights
- Presents being placed too close to the hot lights
- The tree catching on fire
National Geographic has a great blog post on all the benefits of switching to LED Christmas lights.
As excited as I was about our new lights I was a bit distracted by what we should do with all our regular lights from Christmas past. Then I found this: Holiday LEDs.com Christmas Light Recycling Program
What a great offer! Now I can feel good about my “old” lights getting recycled while at the same time I can get a discount on new “greener” lights.
I see some front yard LED light decorating in my husband’s future…
