Default Xmas lights thread

Please share what lights you use, where you buy them and how much they cost.

Right now I'm bouncing between a couple different lighting websites comparing traditional incandescent strings vs led strings.

Last year we had a 13' tree because we had the tall ceilings, but we moved and now have to accept a smaller sad little 8' tree. So to compensate I'll go crazy on the outside of the house. lol

I'd like to surprise my love and have her come home one day to a lit the **** up house.
