Step one of tree decorating is always the lights… and since we had none of our own, we needed to get out there in buy them in bulk. We waited until the Black Friday sales hit and headed to Target to buy their 60-light strings of LED globe lights. We bought 3 strings of multi-colors and 3 strings of “soft white” bulbs as well. Then… we headed to Target and bought 2 50-light strings of bright blue! Our tree will no doubt be colorful before a single ornament is hung!
Now other than the power saving benefits of LED lights (it’ll cost a whole $0.17 to power them until Christmas), and the fire safety element, there’s also the added benefit of being able to string 40+ strands together end-to-end! We could have quite a bright tree if we keep adding our strands together!
So, did anyone else make the LED light jump this year, or last?!?
