Holiday Light Reading

I heard in a conversation last week that California experienced holiday brownouts when icicle lights were first introduced, since they consumed a lot more power than the less-dense Christmas lights that people had been using. I don't know if that's true, but I do know that if I'm going to decorate for the holidays, I'll want to pick up a few strings of the new LED lights, designed to be much more power-efficient than traditional strings. They also don't emit heat, making them a lot safer to use on surfaces that could catch fire.

As a side note, the only light string that I currently have is a set of Dilbert lights that I got as a gift a few years ago. I can't think of any situation where strings of glowing Dilberts and Dogberts would be appropriate.
