Worried about the cost of all those lights strung around your house? Jeannie Mortensen, the Christmas Shop manager at Stew Leonard's, has the solution. Everyones asking for low energy LED lights. Thats the hot thing this season, she said. Were selling tons of them.
The LED (light emitting diode) lights look just like regular lights. Pick warm for a yellow light which is like incandescent bulbs. Cool bulbs give off a blue light and the multi-colored lights are .. just that. You can string several strands together but dont mix them with incandescents.
Once youve got your lights youll need a tree. We have Douglas firs, which have softer needles, balsams, which have the best scent, Fraser firs, which are have sturdy branches for heavier ornaments, and noble firs, said Jeannie. Noble firs are the quintessential Christmas tree, the ones you see in the movies.
Stew Leonards has trees in every size, from tabletop to cathedral ceiling-height. Jeannies staff will help you find that perfect tree and theyll strap it onto the roof of your car. And if you want your tree to last through the holidays, make sure you pick up a box of Miracle Tree. Its like Gatorade for your holiday fir.
