Want to reduce your energy consumption? Don't put up xmas lights all over the place. If you pledged to change an incandescent lamp to a CFL, I would like to point out that your light up holiday seal pup and giant snowglobe are a waste of electricity. While some environmental actions require you to reduce the amount of luxury, this is not one of them. Xmas lights just aren't that great to begin with. Leave it to the professionals because your moving Grinch is scaring the children. If you must have that awful looking lit up Santa, at least put a timer on it. Don't have them on from noon-6pm when your energy consumption is a the dirtiest (older, dirtier power plants are used during this time to prevent rolling blackouts) and don't have them on after 11pm. People need their sleep and the birds are getting disoriented from your plastic Rudolf nose.
