The Christmas Light Debate
LEDs or Old School?
LED is fine for outdoors, but not on the indoor tree. We have had a problem with the base of the LEDs corroding and then the bulb doesn't work. Too much to pay for one season of lighting.
LEDs are too bright and glaring for indoors. Also we have had a big problem with the base of the bulbs corroding & then the whole string of lights doesn't work. Way too expensive to replace every year!
Stop pushing these new types of lights (all bulbs, lighting)
on us. Everything just turns out to not last long and are more expensive.
There is NO Debate
There is no Debate LED's are Superior in every aspect. we have been using them exclusively for 6yrs now. they are brighter more colorful, use almost no electricity and always light when plugged in. No Debate try them and you will NEVER go back. I custom built a solar panel battery system for our outdoors display and now our 5hrs a night cost us ZERO!!
I still like the old school lights, but then I still like 8 track tapes!
I love the old fashioned large twinke lights!!
I love the old fashioned large twinkle lights!!
LED lights are just awful. My next door neighbor has hung big white snowflakes with LED lights and they're making an otherwise beautiful house look like a funeral home. It's almost creepy looking. A good holiday to use LED's would be Halloween, but never Christmas. I'm, traditional all the way!
LED'S are awful. A resident on my street has hung white LED snowflakes and they are making an otherwise beautiful house look like a funeral home. They're almost creepy looking. LED lights should only be used on Halloween and never on Christmas. I'm all for tradition.
