Have you seen the movie “Christmas Vacation”? The Griswolds used enough electricity to power the entire city with their Christmas light decorating.

The quagmire of extension cords was not only a fire hazard, and a safety hazard, but also had enough juice flowing to trip ALL the circuits breakers!

Old Navy Winter

This was all very entertaining, but I think we can agree we don’t want this situation to be recreated in our own front yards. With that said, I’m taking the environmentally conscious route with this article.

The following collection of holiday decorations is the absolute best solar Christmas lights available this year.
