In the 1980's a 35 light set of Christmas tree lights would cost $10.00. That would be more than $20 in todays dollars. Christmas lights were expensive back then and most people would spend a few years building up a stock of lights only to have to replace them the following year. As time went on Christmas lights became less expensive until now when one can buy a cheap 100 light set for under $3 at Wal-Mart. In fact, the lights have become some cheap that most people now consider them disposable. Why waste 1 or 2 hours of time untangling the lights from the tree...

LED Xmas Lights are offered in a variety of colors of white. HolidayLEDs.com offers LED Christmas lights in Pure White, Warm White, and Antique White.

Not many people study Christmas lights. Most people pull the lights out of the closet or attic some time around Thanksgiving, hang them on the Christmas tree, or drape them over some pushes and then take them down after New Years. If you are thinking about replacing those old incandescent lights this year with energy-efficient LED string lights you may be surprised at all the options available. There are differences between the options and it is good to know a little about the choices available before you go shopping.

Each year American families spend hundreds of millions of dollars decorating for the Christmas and other winter time holidays. A major cornerstone of most holiday decorating projects is the Christmas string light. Using light to decorate for seasonal holidays such as Christmas and Hanukkah has been a tradition since before the invention of electricity. Before electricity was available holiday decorators used candles for light. Shortly after electricity was invented incandescent string lights were developed for decorating Christmas trees and other holiday decorating.

Stringing up Christmas lights has traditionally been an unpopular holiday task. Untangling wires, balancing on a ladder attaching them to the house are all chores associated with this endeavor, but the biggest problem for many people is finding that mysterious broken bulb. Hours are lost and tempers flare--most of us remember that classic scene in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation where Clark Griswold nearly looses his mind while attempting to decorate his house for the holiday--but this is where LED Christmas lights can show their true benefit.

In the past few years LED Christmas and holiday lighting has become widely available to consumers. Because Christmas or holiday lights are not an item that consumers think about often and because LED Christmas and holiday lighting is relatively new to the consumer market consumers often do not know what to look for or what is a reasonable price for LED Christmas or holiday lights.

Light Emitting Diodes or LEDs are now considered “the greatest invention in lighting since Edison's light bulb in 1879. LEDs are rapidly replacing light bulbs in a variety of high reliability applications including traffic lights, brake lights, and emergency exit signs.

LEDs are constructed from tiny solid-state chips similar to those used in computers. These chips directly convert electricity to light without the use of a filament or glass bulb. Instead, the chips are encapsulated in solid plastic that can be made into a variety of shapes and sizes.

In the past few years consumers have become increasing concerned about energy consumption for both economical and environmental reasons. As a result, consumers have been replacing traditional incandescent lighting with new highly efficient lighting technology in day-to-day lighting applications. Consumers who wish to carry this concern about energy consumption into the holiday season should strongly consider replacing their old incandescent holiday string lights with high-efficiency LED string lighting.
