Our 1950s Christmas tree lightsDecember 09, 2013
Do you already have your Christmas tree standing, all festive? As you probably already have seen; we have! A real one and my do I love it! That smell is so enthralling; I love to wake up early in the morning when it's still dark outside and smell the delicious aroma of the pinetree and light the Christmas tree ... that is ... if the lights work!
The problem with lights as old as the ones we use, is that it's a one-wire connection. That means if one light burns out, no light will burn. Luckily it was just a matter of tightening the bulbs again and soon they were all burning again and our house was magically lit. We don't have an enormous string of lights so it's not a major undertaking in finding the bad light.
