There are some questions that just must be answered. During the Christmas season, this is one of them. How much would it cost if you wanted to reenact Clark Griswold's Christmas lights in Idaho? Finally, the truth has been revealed.

I'm starting to think this is part of the government's campaign to convince us that LED lights are a good thing, when in truth I believe they are a tool of the devil.

If you're completely confused about exactly what I'm talking about, you need to go buy/rent the movie "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" right now.

If you remember, Clark bragged about his 250 strands of lights, 100 bulbs per strand. With some fast math (or using the calculator on your phone), that's 25,000 Christmas lights. So, the question we're answering is how much would it cost to power that mammoth display in the real world. Thanks to the Estately Blog, you now have your answer.

I'm starting to think this is part of the government's campaign to convince us that LED lights are a good thing, when in truth I believe they are a tool of the devil. For me (the anti-LED guy), it would cost $2,791 per month to have a Clark Griswold Christmas light display. For the yuppie scum frugal consumer that loves LED lights, only a mere $32.
