Saving electricity is also a way of giving, since conserving resources benefits everyone. Use LED Lights for house and Christmas tree lighting – LED holiday lights use up to 95% less energy than larger, traditional holiday bulbs and last up to 100,000 hours when used indoors. LED holiday lights use .04 watts per bulb, 10 times less than mini bulbs and 100 times less than trad ][ۘ[Y^H[ˈݙ\B Y^H\[ Y[ L Y][ۘ[Y^BY[[HX] N[HH[YB[X\وQYۛH NK\[YY۝\YۙHوHQY\›]H\وH[[^H] ]H[\H]]܈Z[K[Y0[Y[H\XK[\[[Z]K[[Z]H\H[Xۂ[^Hܜܘ][ۋ\Y[B[K[ܙ[[\XK[ NNMK][]8&\\Y[X[[[Y\X[KB[[H\\\[\HXB[[]ܛ\^K[[H]\K  Kœ[[Z]KBH L [Y[\\ۛH ]ˈY[x&\B^Z[H]]وY\\H\Yۂ\]X[8&YY[&KYHY\XY[]H L Z[K[Y܈ۛH0HY]و[ [HYH L Z[K[Y[˜ݙ\\ Y][[ ܈H[YXY[]܈Y^HY[ۜY\H]\Q[]Z[XKY[H[ܙY[PSHXZBHY\[K[]HHS[ۙ^H܈B\Z[Y^HX\ۈ[^[ۙ8%\B\H\HYH\[X\ۜ˜ۜY\\\YX\(\ݚY\X[[]XH[\HBH[[[[[Z]YX[\[[^\[ (\[\Y\\Z\[XX]B[Y]^K[HݚY[۝[Z[][][ܙX\H^ۙ[X[Hݙ\[YK(\[\Y\[\[[HBH۝وH8'ܚ[Zx'HXX\›و][]H\[Y\[Y[Έ]\][ܙX\Hݙ\[YK[[8'[YHو\x'Bܚ]\XHXY[Y\8'\Y\BY]]x'H[\] [Y]\[[\[][]H^[Y[\Y\][^H܂XZ[[[Hو[[\]X]YܚYX\KSH8(SԑSS8(SPTS(\[\Y\8'['HZ\]Bو^H܈[XX]K܈[[Z[]H][]\\ݚY\[X[H[[\YH[\H܂YHB][\H\\H[[[H[ۜXZB\]Z[XH[]X]H[[[[ۙB[] ܈T܈\H]K] [ًB]B[Y][ۋH\[\Y[^ܙY]UK]ݚY\\Y\HY\[^ܙY]و \[وHوH\\[H\[]Z[XKHZ[Y[YHوHUۙ\]\[]\\Y\[\][œYۚYX[\ۈZ\[۝H[\H[Y]^K\H\H\H[\ܝ[]Y\[ۜš[ܙ\]\Z[HZYB\Z]YX[YH[\ڙX]\HYXY[HوH\[[Z[\Y\H[[ۙH\\[\[\ܝ[]Y\[ۋY]HH\[Hو[[YXY[H\]ZXBXZ[H[ܚ]H[X[YX\\˜[[[\ˈ\X \YXY[[[]H[[ZYY[HZHHܙX]XK]HX\HY\YXY[H[[X\›[ܙH[\K]H]X\\[]قX[ۋ]HYYۛX]H\[B[[[\HYHYXY[[[HܙYXH\[H[[^\\YۈH\B\\[H\YۈHYx&\\[[XX˜[و^KY[ۜZ[[\YY8%ۛHY\[[^[ۜ[\[ۂ]H]\Z[HHH[XX[\Y[H\XKY\[\K[\BYX[ۈYX\\\\H[\[Y[Y [\X][H^Y\\[H[[B\YۙY]Y\YXY[H[X^[][B][X[^Y ܈H\[H]\[H[YY[\[ܙH\]K0KZYH\X\[0[\KYYXY[KX[Y ۝X\^pX\[ܙHX]H0^\[H[\][0[ۙ^H\Y^HX\ۈ0[܈YX\YHB]HBY\H\X\]8'[[Z]x'HBՑSPTPSPT MZ^KBL
