Sparkle longer with LED Holiday Lights

Matt Berger Nov 27, 2010

Consider using LED (light-emitting diode) holiday lights in place of incandescent lights to decorate homes and Christmas trees.

Longer lasting LED lights use 80 percent less energy and produce significantly less heat. Their cooler operating temperature reduces the danger of fire, but they still sparkle! LED-adorned Christmas trees can also be recycled by various organizations!
