Everyone wants to create a cosy, warm atmosphere during the Christmas holidays and this usually means lots of shining lights. You know in cartoons, when a character gets a bright idea, a magical light bulb suddenly appears above their head. Well, here?s a brilliantly simple idea that literally involves magic light bulbs! Did you know that by replacing a regular incandescent light bulb with a compact fluorescent light bulb (cfl) CFLs you will use 60% less energy than with a regular bulb. This basic switch will save about 300 pounds of carbon dioxide a year. Even better, you can now buy a fantastic selection of super energy efficient LED holiday lights to decorate your Christmas tree. Plus, these can last for up to 100,000 hours. Blinding!
