The Most Popular Texas Christmas Decoration Is Now Banned
This is not an exaggeration, your home in the Killeen-Temple, Texas area and all through out the Lone Star State is likely filled with this very much banned Christmas decoration both inside and out. If you are like me, you may feel like a large part of your childhood and Christmas traditions are being thrown right into the garbage.
Why would the federal government want to ban something that is so common?
It is not just incredibly popular and common, it is most likely a decoration you have used not just for Christmas, but also every other holiday you celebrate in your home. The new federal government ban has had an effect on everyday life.
What Christmas decoration has now been banned by the federal government?
Many of the Christmas lights you probably own are now banned by the federal government for being inefficient. If your family is anything like mine, you have received tons of hand me down lights from generations past.
Back on August 1st, the federal government made the production and sale of incandescent light bulbs illegal, and if you love the old Christmas bubble lights, you will no longer be able to get replacement bulbs.
All of the lights you remember from your parents' and grandparents' trees from years gone by are now completely banned, and the option to repair old strands of lights is now likely a thing of the past too.
New LED bulbs have their benefit, but unfortunately they aren't always an adequate substitute. Merry Christmas!
