Decorative LED Lights

Every year around Christmas time I wonder about the sky high electric bills that people must have with all those lights they use for decoration. We don't decorate, but I still like the lights, so we have several sets we bought on clearance. We've used them for things like decorating for a dance, hanging behind the bar downstairs, and we have some red, white and blue rope lights that we have outside on the column by our front door. We like to turn those on around holidays like Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Veterans Day.

If we had some of these LED Christmas lights instead of the regular old lights, we could use them even more. These new lights are more energy efficient, using only 90% of the energy required by the old kind of lights. They're also safer, virtually indestructible, and last more than 50,000 hours. I'm already picturing them out on our new patio and pergola, whenever we get that finished.
