    I have fond memories of those big Christmas bulbs. Although, they do get pretty hot compared to the newer small ones. Might want to do some research about that before you burn your house down. I could be wrong about that though.

    I have one tree that is all ornaments that are 40years or older and passed down from grandmothers, my mother and my late husbands grandmother and mother. Last year was the first year I set it up that way and I had mini lights on it but this year I am going to do the older lights. The new/older looking lights are not near as hot as the originals. I have some of the originals and am debating on using them - the cord is still good so that is not a problem - it is just the heat

    I like the newer mini lights myself. They are not as heated and look like twinkling stars.
    Wishing you many hot cocoa mornings and firesky nights throughout the new year!

    I have multi color C-7 lights outdoors. Last year I bought a pre-lit (white mini lights) tree for the living room and I have white mini lights on all my other indoor trees.




    My daughter is arranging the garland on my living room tree right now.

    I have used the minis for years. I use to like when they would twinkle independently instead of the whole string.

    Aw shucks! We ran out of garland. I hope we can get some tomorrow. Yes, I'm using Jim Shore and other ornaments, too.
