Multi Color Christmas Lights Smackdown

by | Apr 2, 2017

Hey, I’ve got two sets of multicolored lights here. I’ve got traditional Christmas tree lights, and then LED lights. And you know, I really can’t pick them one against the other. Because you know, the light you choose is really gonna be based on what you love.

Traditional Christmas lights are warm and glowing. And they just remind me of home and granny and hot chocolate. But LED lights, you can run like a billion in series, well not really, but you can run, say over 40-80+ strings of these in series, but they just have a different modern look about them.

I really enjoy using these traditional lights on trees that feature kids’ crafts, and you know, the kind of tree you put popcorn balls on and things like that. And then these trees look super fun with cool and interesting ornaments. (Usually, I buy ornaments for 80% off from Hobby Lobby, you know, in January.)  But keep in mind that they both have their strengths and weaknesses. But ultimately, your choice of multi is gonna be all about taste.

Now, in the traditional lights, keep in mind that the colors are blue, green, orange,  pink, and red. So that’s really cool. But everybody knows that red and pink they’re really close together.

And then in the LED version, these have orange, yellow, green, red, and blue, no pink. So keep that in mind as well.

So what kind of Christmas light person are you? Are you multi traditional, or multi-LED? The answer is yours.
