I went to Wal Mart. (I like to call it "Wally World",) and they had either the fiber optic lights OR the pre-lit trees. I didn't see much in the way of "regular" trees. I'm looking for a tree that's like 6 ft. tall, (about 2 meters,) but isn't wide at the bottom.
Wally World had 6 ft. trees, but they were pretty wide at the bottom. Since I'm in a small apartment, I can't give it that kind of space. But I did find an assorment of different shapes, sizes of colored chrome-like ornements. If I get a 6 footer, I might need two boxes of the ornaments to fill the tree properly. Pre-lit or not.
But I do like the idea that I wouldn't have to buy strings of lights this year. But I'll have to check out the wattage of the bulbs that I need to replace them as they burn out.
Does the forum have a topic of the new things we buy for the holidays? At the Halloween.com forum, we took pictures of our "New Additions" for Halloween. I wonder if we do the same thing here?
