New-fangled lights

Knowing that the Christmas box contained one string of lights labelled "DEAD" (why do I keep these things??), one labelled "White -- half dead", and only one that theoretically worked, we bought some new lights for the tree this year. Given their lower energy use and cooler operating temperature, we got a couple of boxes of LED lights. I'm still skeptical about their slightly excessive brightness for indoor use and the cold-seeming quality of the light, but they do cast delighful tree shadows on the wall and one's pajama-clad kid (latter not pictured as she couldn't stop dancing long enough for me to take a well-focused shot of her in the dark).
