Oh, Christmas Tree

  1. The white LED lights look so blue. I noticed at Canadian Tire they had white LED lights that were meant to look “true white”. Maybe those would be better? I totally hear you about the glow of a Christmas tree… the tree and a gingerbread house are a couple of my favourite Christmas rituals. I’m a multicoloured-lights-on-the-tree kind of person and I’m hoping my LEDs look ok… I’ve got an old back up string of incandescents just in case.

  2. Ok, last comment I swear. Just exchanged all the multicoloured lights I bought for white incandescents. I’ve been converted. 🙂

    Yes! White incandescents FTW!

  3. I teach environmental politics. I have very strong environmental conscience. But I can’t help but totally applaud you for this post. Damn LED lights. Give me my white incandescents.

  4. I hate the LED lights too; we are on our second attempt with LED lights for our house (I still have my old incandescents on the tree inside). The second LED attempt is better than the first, but I am still not loving them. Glad to hear I’m not the only one. I try to be environmentally conscious: we use the reusable bags for any shopping, recycle everything, and put reverse-osmosis in at home to stop using bottled water (our tap water is total crap in San Diego). Christmas lights are up for such a short period of time…I draw the line at that!

  5. Glad to see I am not the only one hating LEDs. I don’t go ‘Griswold’ on my house, but try to light it up for my kids; all the bushes in front, each window, etc. Last year, I got rid of my icicle dangling lights for a 60′ strand of leds for the front stretch. I also bought nets and other strands. Wow – what a POS these ba$tards are, not to mention how much $ I spent on them! And, they have no warmth! It’s like going to a concert and instead of holding the lighter, you are holding a flash light – and led flash light! I think I am going to trash them next year… I have to admit, at least they all lit when I took them out of the container! Sometimes I wonder if the gov’t made the incandescent light strands. Put them away and they are all working; the next year open the box and half are out!
