We’ve switched all of our old incandescent Christmas lights to LED. I really just have one holdout. Five sets of old lights with a control box for our main Christmas tree . On the box there is an option for alternating slow fading. I love these lights so much. I have not been able to get rid of them even though they are old and inefficient. Well, I’ve finally found a replacement that will do the same thing. I found the LEDs with a control box at Environmental Lights. They have a fantastic selection of LEDs. I plan on placing an order after Christmas (the old lights are already on the tree). The lights are not cheap, but the energy savings over a several years should pay for the extra expense. I hope these will be better quality LEDs than some of the ones from the big discount stores. I promise to post an update when I’ve tried them out. In the mean time if you want to visit the site I’ll post the link.
