Survey: Are You Using LED Lights This Year?

Survey: Are You Using LED Lights This Year?

My household got our first Christmas tree in 5 years, which means we needed new lights! So naturally we opted for the LED variety, but to be honest, after seeing some of tell tale blue-hued LED lights around the city, we were a little nervous.

Maybe those people got their lights awhile ago when they weren't so good, because ours are pretty great. Granted, they don't have that so much of a golden glow – they are a pretty true white, but definitely not blue. If you're worried about the hue, then go for a mult-colored strand or a make sure to get bulbs marked "warm" or "soft" white.

We definitely suggest getting LED lights over incandescent &mdash not only are they energy efficient, but they'll save you money on your electric bills, have a much longer life span, are cool to the touch, safer and less prone to breaking. We got our 50-bulb strand at Home Depot for $10.99, but LED Christmas lights are readily available online, and in stores.
