|It's hard to believe the old lights all fit in this box.|
When all the lights were removed, we put the tree together. I imagine we are throwing away 999 good light bulbs, but finding the one or two bad ones was more than we could muster. We were able to find a very good price on LED lights so we bought four strings of 105 lights. Instead of the mini lights, we bought the C6 size. Now we know why we bought a pre-lit tree in the first place. Putting lights on a Christmas Tree is a pain, but when the ornaments are on it doesn't really matter if they are evenly spaced. After taking a few breaks because my patience was running thin, the job is done. I am not sure I would make that same decision again but at least part of our tree will not be going into the landfill.
|I kind of like the bigger lights. All that is left is the star and a few more ornaments.|
