Ideas for St Patrick's Day Lights
With St. Patrick's Day a week away, many are thinking of different ways to get into the spirit of cheer associated with this day. Some will dress up as leprechauns while some will spend some time at their local pub sipping a pint with friends. For those with a much more subdued idea of celebrating, lights can be an interesting way to change things up at home or around the office. There are lots of different types you can use as your St. Patrick's Day lights but here are a few ideas to consider.
Green String Lights
There's something about hanging lights on your patio or a tree that just feels good. Whether it's Christmas, Halloween or some other holiday it's hard to go wrong with string lights as decorative lighting. You can get green string lights in either Incandescent or LED. The hardest decision you'll have to make is decision the length of the lights based on where you'll be putting them.
Green Rope Lights
Another great way to add some green without spending a lot of green is using rope lights. Rope lights are extremely versatile since you can cut them and use them to make funky shapes and designs with the right adapters and accessories. Since rope lights are thicker than string lights they stand out a lot more which might something to consider if you're looking to really make your lights stand out.
Green Light Bulbs
By far the easiest way of adding some green lights to your home is using light bulbs. Most people will unscrew the bulbs being used to light the front or back yard and will temporarily replace it with a colored one. If that sound more like what you had in mind, you'll want to consider if you want to use a Incandescent, CFL or LED. There really is no wrong answer here but sometimes it's good to know what choices exist.
Incandescent Green Light Bulbs
Available in your choice of transparent or opaque.
CFL Green Light Bulbs
Green LED Light Bulbs
With a rating of 50,000 hours, this might be the last green bulb you buy.
No matter which way you choose to go, the hope is that you enjoy yourself surrounded by those you love (at least some that you like). Have a fun and happy St. Patrick's Day - Erin go Bragh.
