The summer is full of patriotic holidays. Armed Forces day honors those who serve in the military. July 4th marks both the birthday of the United States and the midpoint of summer. Tucked in between Memorial Day and July 4th is Flag Day, where the country celebrated the adoption of the Stars and Stripes as the official symbol of America. Flag Day is June 14th, the day that the Second Constitutional Congress adopted the flag in 1777. But the holiday didn’t come into being until over 110 years later.
Spring is just around the corner and you know what that means? St. Patty’s Day is too. Whether you have plans to share some corned beef and cabbage with your family or throw a festive celebration with your friends, there are many simple ways to set the mood using LED lighting and basic household items.
It’s that joyous time of year. When the snow finally starts to melt. The trees start to bud tiny bits of green. Spring is in the air and that means that brides-to-be everywhere are anxiously counting down the days to their big day. Spring and early summer are the best months for weddings, especially outdoor weddings. The right decorative atmosphere helps to make your outdoor wedding magical and memorable.
“Doing nothing is respectable at tea.” —Saying quoted in Sasaki Sanmi, Sadô Sajiki
The holiday pre-season is here—the perfect time to pause for tea, and “do nothing” for a short while. Many individuals plan an annual holiday tea party with friends before the rush of the season takes over. A number of restaurants and inns offer holiday tea time once a week during the busy season. Whether you’re an individual that loves the tea tradition or the owner of a restaurant, this could become a favorite event to host. You simply need to choose a theme, know your teas, select edibles, and decorate for the event.

Battery-powered LED Christmas style lights are so energy efficient and transportable that people are finding more non-traditional uses for them all the time. A little while ago we reported on people who are expressing their creativity, by using an interactive LED Lights on bicycles, and others who were using them to make signs, or to decorate their animal counterparts for parades. Still, even I was surprised when I tuned into my favorite guilty pleasure this week, Project Runway All-Stars, to find that the challenge involved designing an “avant-garde” outfit using innovative lighting technologies that included plenty of LED choices (to watch the episode, click here).

Often times the nature of, and/or and location of a holiday display, makes powering your Christmas lights with standard AC power difficult. In situations where it is not possible to, or desirable to power your xmas lights using standard power cords, try using battery operated LED Christmas Lights.
