When you’re looking to design your holiday displays, one of the best ways to get inspired, is to see what bright ideas other people come up with. With that in mind, here are ten photos from a trip to Seattle’s Candy Cane Lane (along with ideas), that we hope will get your creative juices flowing:

In Seattle, it’s Candy Cane Lane. In Baltimore, it’s Miracle on 34th Street. In Georgia, it’s the village of Avondale Estates. Many cities have them – entire neighborhoods where every house gets on board with over-the-top displays that causes kids’ eyes to pop out of their heads with delight.

Now that cities have started putting up their annual holiday displays, some people may wonder just how much cities and shopping districts can save by switching to more efficient LED holiday lighting. So we decided to use the most famous tree of all – the 74-foot tall spruce at Rockefeller Center – as a case study.

You may be surprised to find that there is quite a difference in quality when shopping for LED Christmas lights. From the retail or novelty products at your local big box store, to the commercial or premium grade products we offer, and everything in between.

If you’re trying to create a holiday display to wow people driving through your neighborhood at night, putting your lights on a timer is a simple way to ensure you’ll get maximum exposure, even when you’re not at home. If you want to make sure you’re not wasting money, by accidentally leaving the lights on during the day, a timer can help with that too.

For the first time, a new poll shows that a majority of Americans are aware that the traditional incandescent light bulb (that you would screw into a light socket) is being phased out, in favor of more energy efficient choices. But people are still confused about what’s covered, and some still think the federal government has “banned” the incandescent light bulb.

The New York Daily News has the scoop, on the tree that’s been chosen to grace New York’s Rockefeller Center this year. Turns out, it’s a been a badly kept secret in the town of Mifflinville, PA, population 2500.

There are now so many choices in LED holiday lighting products, that sometimes it’s hard to know what to pick, or how many lights you’ll need. Here are some tips, from our professional Christmas Light Installers, on how to order just the right amount of material.

General tips

Here at HolidayLEDs.com, we’re happy to assist customers with special circumstances, and to help figure out which holiday lighting product(s) will work best. But it’s not every day that we get to work with a site that played a pivotal role in American history.

A new service industry has arisen, offering Christmas light installation services, to homeowners and business. Undoubtedly, this is a service that has been available for some time, but it has recently become more mainstream. We frequently provide Christmas lights to professional installers and landscapers, and occasionally get questions from other business owners interested in offering professional holiday LED lighting services to their customers, but I've never really taken the time to understand the business.
