During the winter months, particularly in December leading up to the holidays, we typically consume more energy than in any other time of year. Help offset the impact with energy efficient holiday lights. Low wattage LED lights use around 80% less energy than traditional incandescent. LED holidays lights have other benefits as well. They are safer than traditional lights, emit less heat, break less easily, and last longer.
Even if you don't have space for a tree or wish to forgo the tree for conservation purposes, Jennifer, the jewelry designer behind the blog, A Merry Mishap, shows that you don't need a tree to decorate one with lights.
