Decorate your Mac with bright, shiny lights!

Who needs all those headaches competing with the neighbors? Why break your neck falling off the roof this year? Heck, all you need is a copy of NightLights to get your festive spirit across. It’s cheap, and the bulbs never burn out.

It doesn’t matter which holiday you’re celebrating, there’s a color combination for every need. NightLights comes with Mini, C7, LED, Bubble, Flicker, and novelty shaped light bulbs. You can mix and match, choose from various blink modes, and more!

Use NightLights to frame your display with colored lights, or create lighted scenes with your own photos, and backgrounds.

So install NightLights, turn off the lights, and kick back with a hot cup of Cocoa. Let the guy across the street blow his circuits, and set his house on fire.
