White is the new Clear when it comes to Christmas lights

February 21, 2010

Just when I think that I’ve thought about Christmas lights in just about every possible way I see something new and wonder how I missed it.

It’s not earth shattering or anything but in the same way that some folks say pecan and others say pee-can, I just realized a couple of days ago that half the people in the world thing of clear Christmas lights as White. White Christmas lights – who knew?! 🙂

Well, I guess it only stands to reason – there’s red, green, blue, etc. – why not white? I guess since they look transparently clear that clear has always been my descriptive word of choice.

So… are uncolored Christmas lights clear… or white? What say you?

Along with “how can bacon burn on only one side” this question won’t mean much to anyone but a few Holiday lighting fanatics and me but I guess I’ll have to be egalitarian and start using both descriptions equally.

So whether they are clear or white…. this color of Christmas light is still the most popular and most versatile and I really must roll out some application posts this week.

Watch for some tips and tricks to be posted soon.

Best regards,
