Don't you think that Christmas lights waste huge energy ?

For the whole Christmas period, streets and houses will brighten up with various decorations, tinsels and trees… Around the world and especially on Strasbourg which is called the world’s capital of Christmas, colorful lights and decorations are everywhere. Cities are enchanting and tourists are coming in million…

Apart from being very expensive, don’t you think that it depicts huge energy consumption?
Thinking about the total amount of bulbs illuminated should be afraid you !
Moreover, outdoor municipal public skating rinks will be opened to entertainment people. But it needs a larger cooling system to keep the ice at the right temperature. Energy wasteful again !

What do you think about it ? Does Christmas period need so much electricity or can we reduce it ?
