AIBU To Not like Blue Christmas lights? (Light-hearted)

I really do not like them and yet where I live they have become very 'popular'.

I love original yellow fairy lights, no chaser, no flashing, no colours as such -no bright white.

Never mind, each to their own! X

You would get on with my DH. He protests their existence to anyone who will listen.

However the person who invented blue LEDs won a nobel prize for it as they are very useful in some kind of medical shiz.

I absolutely agree with you! They genuinely give me a headache.

Hey my tree is rocking the blue disco lights from hell the kids adore.

I like them unless they are the type that flash. I dislike any kind of flashing lights, irrespective of colour.

I find blue flashing fairy lights distracting when I’m driving because they give me the “is an emergency services vehicle heading my way?” jolt.

They’re also cold-looking, not cheerily Christmassy 🎄

They are so very wrong. I don't like the white ones either. Yellow or coloured are the only tolerable Christmas lights.

YANBU, they are everywhere and look so cold

Titsywoo Tue 12-Dec-17 00:30:44

Me too. Hate them. They are ugly and not xmassy at all. They look cheap i think. No idea why though! I only like warm white lights though. Multicoloured at a push.

Not nice at all. Twice this evening at work I glanced out of the window and thought there was a police car outside.

No, it was 2 different blue-lit trees confused

I don't like them either. Never have. I don't mind the bright white outdoors but on the tree it has to be warm white. They give a nice, cosy light. Like candlelight.
Blue fairy lights are a hideous abomination.

Goes along with the majority view of warm white inside, bright white outside and blue lights... just no*


*equally lighthearted

Another blue and bright white fairy light hater here,especially flashing ones.They are not cheering and have slowly taken over everywhere in the last few years.

I like the warm white ones but the the DC asked for coloured lights on the outside trees like the neighbours. So we have a mix.

CheapSausagesAndSpam Tue 12-Dec-17 02:01:53

Those saying OP is unreasonable ...what is it about them that you like?

antimatter Tue 12-Dec-17 02:02:46

the blue one's go right into my brain! I swear when I had different kind of glasses they would just blind me for a few seconds.
horrible feeling!

when I used to drive I would just look away from where I knew that light was coming from

QueenEnid Tue 12-Dec-17 02:21:28

Yanbu. I bloody hate blue lights

HuskyMcClusky Tue 12-Dec-17 02:28:50


I love all outdoor fairy lights. Pretty twinkly little blue lights wound through the bushes...what’s not to love?

However, after the tinsel thread, I’ve accepted that my taste in Christmas decorations is tacktastic. grin

Chrys2017 Tue 12-Dec-17 02:55:37

They are very cold. I got some only because they were on sale and 1/2 the price of the coloured lights. Regret it now and can't wait for them to pack up so I can get some new ones!

notangelinajolie Tue 12-Dec-17 03:06:47

Yes I hate blue lights too. I think lots if people must agree as they are the only ones left on the shelves in the shops right now.

People across the road have blue flashing ones and I keep thinking the police or an ambulance is outside.

FrancisCrawford Tue 12-Dec-17 05:35:09

Another one who detests the coldness and harshness of them.

And flashing just makes it ten times worse.

BillywilliamV Tue 12-Dec-17 05:43:15

Mine are beautiful, thank you.
