We talk to a lot of customers who are interested in synchronizing their Christmas lighting display with music but don’t really know where to start. We currently don’t sell any musical Christmas lighting accessories and don’t have any in-house experts on the subject so we generally refer them to the good folks at Light-O-Rama who are the undisputed experts in this area. I wanted to educate myself a bit about the musical Christmas light set ups so I recently spent about 30 minutes on the phone with Chuck from Light-O-Rama.

Americans have many great holidays and holiday traditions including Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Halloween. Many of us celebrate these holidays by decorating, having parties, giving gifts, and traveling to be with family members. Americans love our holiday celebrations and they wouldn’t be the same without the long-standing accompanying traditions like turkey on Thanksgiving, trick-or-treating on Halloween, or Christmas lights on Christmas.

Each year we speak to and receive emails from a number of people who are interested in solar power Christmas lights. We’ve looked at several options for solar powered Christmas lights and found that most of the stuff that is on the market today simply isn’t very good.

When the weather turns cooler and leaves begin to fall, you know it’s time to start planning the annual fall festival.

Although I know enough about LED technology to know there isn't any hidden environmental hazard, I must admit I was a little concerned. The catchy title probably lured in a lot of readers like me but it really had nothing to do with LED technology. The article discussed the history and patterns of human consumption of light over time....

Halloween is quickly becoming the most popular holiday for decorating. If you are planning to host a haunted house, Halloween party, or hungry trick-or-treaters, it is essential that quality lighting is a priority on your to-do list. Energy-efficient, long-lasting Halloween lights are the perfect way to create a spooky, yet safe environment. Light the way for trick-or-treaters, create an eerie backyard haunted house, or cast a spooky glow over a costume party. No matter your event, festive LED lights will make this Halloween spookier, safer, and more entertaining than ever before.

Update, October 2014: As one of our most popular articles over the years, we felt it important to update our readers that it is still true that there is still no U.S. manufacture of Christmas lights. But while you can't buy "made in the USA" lights, you can buy from a quality U.S. company who works with high quality and responsible overseas suppliers.
