I'm Dreaming of a Green Christmas

For the first time, last weekend, Tom and I (and two little helpers) put up Christmas lights outside our house. We had been talking about getting solar powered outside lights for a couple of years, and last Saturday, I just said, let's go get them. So, off we went to Target and purchased 3 boxes of these.

I didn't do any research whatsoever on solar powered lights. I just wanted to get some and get them up, with the idea that I would return them if they didn't work out.

Well, so far, so good. They aren't as bright as traditional lights, but to me , they definitely have a magical sparkliness to them. And I don't have to remember to turn them on or off. And they are powered by the sun! Very cool.
