Star Light, Star Bright: Update Your Bulbs for the Holidays


Between the twinkling trees and the dazzling parties, the holiday season is heavy on electricity usage. Luckily, Cree can help keep your bill down and give your home that stay-a-while radiance all season long. As a company dedicated to bringing the value of LED lighting to everyone, Cree offers long-lasting, energy-efficient bulbs—all available only at The Home Depot—that deliver the lovely light of traditional incandescent bulbs at a fraction of their cost.

Cree is on a mission to drive 100-percent adoption of LED lighting, and they're off to a great start: The company's ENERGY STAR® qualified, 40- and 60-watt soft white LED bulbs are a simple and inexpensive way to make your home shine over the holidays. They start at under $10 (even less with local utility rebates) and deliver an 84-percent energy savings over traditional incandescent bulbs, with a whopping 25,000-hour lifetime! The newest member to the Cree lineup—the 75-watt replacement bulb—can help the holidays shine even brighter in your home. Talk about a great stocking-stuffer or gift-swap idea.

It's all about the light, though, and these bulbs are more home-sweet-home glow than cubicle-farm glare—which is exactly why we're going to swap them into our table lamps and guest rooms before holiday visitors arrive. We'll also pick up a few LED flood lights, which lend the same warm, beautiful light to track and recessed lighting: ideal for party ambience or a little more clarity in the kitchen when we're in full cookie-baking mode.
