We bought our first set of LED Christmas lights and I think they are really cool!! Saw something on TV that said the power savings alone if every switched to LED lights was like 250 million dollars.. That's a lot of energy at 6 cents a killowatt hour..

And they are cool... 14 people die from Christmas tree fires every year in the US... And they last 4,000 hours... The only down side is they are more expensive... Don't know what the economics of them are but they are safer and more energy efficient so what's not to love?

I've also switched to LED flashlights and have a neat solar powered LED light out in my shed where I don't have any power.. Plus the solar powered LED walk lights.. Be nice is we got a bit more sun here!! Lol

Anyone else buy LED Christmas lights this year?

I bought indoor LED lights for the Christmas tree this year. My outdoor Christmas display is a star but it only fits the large Christmas bulbs. I am thinking of buying some other type of outdoor display that has LED lights to replace the star.

The LED flashlight sounds neat. Next time I'm shopping I plan on buying one.

They are Shelley!! I have a 9 LED flashlight and an 11 LED flashlight.. And they are very bright although more of the cool white type of light..

We have a large snowflake on the chimney and its a metal frame with a white rope light wrapped tightly to it.. But it died last year and I just bought a new rope light and some electrical zip ties and fixed it.. Should have gotten a string of led lights instead of the rope lite...

Karren, what is the price that you paid for the Christmas lights???? It sounds like something I might try next year. Still had to use up the ones I had this year.

went to Target and all the LED Christmas lights were sold out. I'll try again soon. All my headlamps/flashlights are LED. I am all for anything that cuts the electric bill! and Karren, 6cents/kwh more like 7.7cents/kwh.

We have cheap coal fired plants here.. New England is over 11 cents last time I checked.. Nuclear and oil fired!!

Still had to use up the ones I had this year. Home Depot had them for like $6 for a 50 light string.. Vs $2 for the old mini incondicent bulbs.. I figure by next year the price will drop in half as they become more prevalent...
