Light-emitting diode (LED) holiday lights

Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are very energy-efficient lights that are becoming increasingly popular alternatives to traditional incandescent bulbs in strings of holiday lights. Between 2007 and 2009, there was a 10% increase in the number of Canadian households reporting their use to almost one-third (32%) of households. All provinces showed an increase in their use, except for Ontario, with households in Atlantic Canada and Saskatchewan having the greatest increases in their uptake.
