The Feds Outlawed A Popular Christmas Decoration In Montana
This Popular Christmas Decoration Is Now Banned In Montana
When I moved to Montana the first thing I fell in love with, besides the majestic beauty of the state, was how much the mantra seemed to be "as long as you don't bother me, I don't care what you do."
Montanans have always had that individualist streak in them, and as someone who prided themselves on being their own person, I felt at home under the Big Sky.
That's why it's so frustrating to me when the federal government sticks it's nose into my business.
This is something that's been a long time coming, as it was back in the early part of the year this new policy was announced.
Now there are some unintended consequences surrounding the Christmas season.
Incandescent Lights Are No Longer Allowed In Montana
You may also remember when it was first reported that the US government was saying we needed to switch from incandescent lights to the newer led lights.
Truth be told, I've been using LED lights for years in my house.
I'm not sure if I'm saving A LOT of money each year, but I did notice I was having to replace light bulbs less often than before.
If you are like me and are still using Christmas tree lights that are not LED, don't worry about federal agents crashing your holiday celebration and arresting you; just know that going forward, when you look to buy lights, you'll probably only be able to buy the LED kind.
