Because of the energy crisis: German environmental aid calls for no Christmas lights

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 view of the war in Ukraine, the energy shortage, but also for reasons of climate protection, we should pause for a moment," said Resch. He referred to the power consumption. "The private lighting orgies alone cause a power consumption of over 600 million kilowatt hours of electricity per year - as much as a medium-sized city with 400,000 inhabitants consumes in a year."

"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."
