Green Christmas Lights

When it comes to decorating for the holiday season, the best choice for Christmas lights seems to be LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes). Here's a brief recap of some of their advantages:

Cost Effective - the initial expense is recouped over time, with less wattage used and fewer replacement bulbs needed.
Cool - LEDs cause no heat build-up, therefor reducing risk of fire.
Durable - LED are solid with no filament, so they can endure conditions which incandescents can't.
Energy Efficient - LED light bulbs use only a fraction (1/3 - 1/30) of the energy required for Incandescent or CFL bulbs.
Long Lasting - LED bulbs last longer than both compact fluorescents and incandescents.
Mercury Free - there is no mercury is used in LEDs.

So... they're colourful and green!
