Its beginning to look...

Anthony is a bit of a Scrooge when it comes to Christmas, in regards to our energy usage.  He won't let me keep the Christmas tree on too long because it uses so much electricity (1,080 watts -- like a hair dryer continuously on while its lit).  He frets while he watches our meter.  He's not a miser, he's just green.  Like the Grinch!

My tree is in our front room, but we mostly live in the living room.  I have a live wreath in there, and I hang a lighted garland on our mantle.  "I'd let you leave it on all the time if it was LED," he said.  My old garland was looking ratty anyway, so after a google search, I made a speedy stop at Sears for this nice LED garland:

At 2.4 watts, its been spreading Christmas cheer 24-7 since I bought it.

HAHAHA! He sounds like Michael. Once the tree is up, though, Michael likes it. I'm pretty sure.
