Default eco friendly Christmas lights

Menards already has there Christmas lights out. I know it seems early but if you want solar powered, CFL or LED lights now's the time to get them.
Last year they were gone before the real Christmas rush started.
I've also seen LED lights at Target and The Home Depot. I am sure other hardware stores have them.

No, no. They "power up" during the day, then come on at night. I think mine have a light senser, so that they only come on a dark. Of coarse the more sun the get, the longer they last.

You can cloud the issue with facts all you want. I saw the opportunity to whine, and I took it.

Solar christmas lights - how cool is that?
