LED Christmas Lights Might Be One Of The Best Decisions You Make This Holiday (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Christmas lights are chosen for their beauty rather than practicality. Mainly, the big decision is whether to go all-white or for color. From there, maybe you consider multi-color or single color, big bulbs vs. small. Do you consider the environmental impact? Probably not.

But the LED Christmas lights flooding the market right now might be worth a second look for more than just the "green" factor. Though they're usually a few dollars more per strand, there are a few bigger benefits, like the fact that they won't burn out as quickly as traditional versions. (There's always that one bulb that goes out immediately.) Watch the video above for the full scoop, plus an interesting way to recycle old lights.
