When the lights flash white, social networks like Twitter and Facebook are humming with Christmas chatter. Green means Christmas is being mentioned in the news. Red means blogs and forums are abuzz with yuletide musings. Blue with flashing strobe lights means people are posting messages at http://www.christmasspirittree.ca/, the home-page for the tree, which features live video streaming, or sending a text message to 70734.

Led strip lighting in its essence, is a continuous row of LEDs that have been soldered together with resistors to form a circuit. When powered by a power supply or driver, the LEDs produce a seamless light, similar to a fluorescent. LEDs are low voltage and require a DC (direct current supply) which is usually 12 or 24 volt DC.
