    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!

    they are the C7 size bulb - the kind that are used in the Christmas window candles and also nightlights. you can buy strands of them. I also think you can get the same look in the new LED lighting but I am not ready to switch over to LED yet. Target has a nice wide variety of older looking lights for Christmas trees in LED

    I bought some led lights which give you the look with the bigger bulbs. They are nice and they do not get hot and use less energy. I have them on one of my small wall trees and another small tree.

    :light: C7 Christmas Lights

    When I was a child I remember helping my dad put up strands of the C7 bulbs around our garage and elsewhere on the house...I remember them getting very hot, but I'm not sure if the new ones still get that way.
