It's a Through-Hole Christmas, Charlie Brown!

Decorate for the holidays in SparkFun style with the Through-Hole Christmas Kit! This ornamental kit comes with a neatly-cut, tree-shaped PCB, adorned with super-bright green LEDs, and topped with a yellow LED. The LEDs are controlled by a pre-programmed ATtiny85 AVR, and the circuit is powered via a couple AA batteries. The included battery holder has an ON/OFF switch so you can turn the ornament off to save on battery life.
This kit comes as a bag of parts, which you'll need to solder onto the tree PCB. All components are through-hole, so this is a great kit for that first-time solderer. Make sure you install everything with the correct polarity!

Kit Includes:

* 1x Christmas Tree PCB
* 1x ATtiny85 - Programmed for X-mas Kit
* 1x LED - Basic Yellow
* 9x LED - Super Bright Green
* 1x Resistor 10KΩ
* 1x 2xAA Battery Holder with Cover and Switch
