Oh god. LED christmas lights are a huuuuge peeve of mine.As for the LED thing, I noticed that too. Why do the blue LEDs always have to be so intense? They can make Christmas lights look really harsh and unnatural, at least compared to incandescent.
Incandescant christmas lights are bright, warm, soft... They're like a hug from warm cup of hot chocolate while you pet a kitten.
LED christmas lights are dim, cold, garish. They're like being raped by a cyberpunk dystopia.
