Due to the energy crisis, the German Environmental Aid has called for Christmas lights to be abandoned in cities and private households. "This winter, it should be a matter of course that both the Christmas lights in cities and the houses and apartments will be dispensed with," said Federal Managing Director Jürgen Resch to the newspapers of the editorial network Germany. "He proposed a lighting limit of one tree per city and community before.
"In addition, there is the possible saving by doing without the Christmas lights in our cities and communities," said Resch. "Perhaps this can be reduced to one lighted tree per community. Consciously doing without, saving and showing solidarity could even make this Christmas season a very special one."
