I used to think that there were certain tasks, that were so simple they really could not be screwed up, and stringing lights on a Christmas tree seemed like one of those tasks. I mean, how hard can it be? Well, I suppose it really isn't that difficult to throw some lights on the tree and plug them in. However, after my first attempt at stringing lights on my families' first Christmas tree, I quickly learned that there is a big difference between what I had accomplished, and properly strung lights on a Christmas tree.

There are many benefits to using LED for your decorative lighting and it seems that we've written about most of them. However, every so often we learn of a new benefit of using LED lights.

We have several large containers of Christmas lights of all varieties that we keep to show customers and for other projects. Every time I went to find a sample it was a huge pain to extract the light set I wanted because all of the lights would be tangle together, especially the icicle lights. Our shipping manager recently came up with a solution for winding and storing icicle lights that seems to work pretty good.

Here's a short video we did about the different colors of white LED Christmas lights we offer:

The energy savings, costs savings and safety of LED Christmas lights are wonderful, but one of the coolest things about Christmas LED lights is that they can do so much more than traditional Christmas lights. One of my favorite new products is the morphing LED light set.
