Default Light extract vs light malt extract

I have found a Holiday beer recipe that calls for 4 lbs. light malt extract and 3.3 lbs. light extract. and a little chocolate malt and crystal.
My question is what is the difference between light malt extract and just light extract?
and I am not even drinking tonight (yet)

They are the same. The recipe assumes that you will only be able to find extract in 3.3 pound cans. You need between 7 and 7.5 pound of light or extra light or pale liquid malt extract.
