Christmas may be over, but winter has just begun. Our LED lights are rated to last over 50,000 hours and use just a tiny fraction of energy compared to traditional incandescent Christmas lighting, which means they really don’t have to be set aside just for the holidays. Christmas lights don’t just have to be used for Christmas anymore. Our warm white mini Color-Rite LED string lights are versatile enough to use year-round.

The city of Ghent lies nestled midway between Bruges and Brussels in Flemish Belgium. Much like many cities along the central northern coast of Europe, Ghent features a well-preserved glimpse into the middle ages, with much of its medieval architecture still intact and part of the today’s functioning city, such as Saint Bavo Cathedral, which was consecrated all the way back in 942 A.D.

According to Sparky the fire dog at the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), decorations are the first things to ignite in over 1,000 home fires each year. Autumn and Halloween decorations seem especially vulnerable due to the tinder-like quality of dried foliage and flowers combined with the use of candlelight to cast spooky shadows and keep a dark and dreary feel to the holiday.

According to WebMD, fear of the dark typically manifests itself around the ages of 2-3 when children reach the stage of brain development where the imagination takes off, but isn’t yet experienced enough to discern reality from non-reality yet.

This amazing lighting display was actually put up last Christmas, winning Good Morning America’s holiday lighting contest. But we thought its patriotic theme might serve as inspiration for the 4th of July.

We’ve written about how bicyclists are using LED lights to transform their rides (for both decoration and safety), but here’s a project that elevates that concept to high art.

In honor of this year’s Earth Day, we thought we’d remind our customers what a great thing they’re doing for the planet by buying LED products. You may know the basics: LED lights are durable and designed to last up to 50 times longer than traditional bulbs, which means less waste being recycled or tossed in the landfill. LED lights can also save up to 85 percent of the energy gobbled up by incandescent bulbs, and up to 50 percent of the energy used by fluorescents.

Cities are well aware that switching to LED lights—in their holiday displays, office corridors, and streetlights—can save lots of money. But here’s another surprising advantage: Police believe that the cooler, more focused light from LED streetlights might actually help fight crime.
