Remember? Hell, I should-I just got done stringing them up on the tree this morning.

I don't like the little lights. Christmas lights should be large, hot, and glaringly orange or blue or whatever.

Are these things still available to purchase and who has them?

The ones my old man had were HOT! How we never burned the house down I'll never know.

C-9 are the bigger ones IIRC.

Those are the smaller size of the big ones. The real burners are the C-9s!

We had an outdoor tree full of them many years ago. Took a single 15amp circuit for just that one tree. The extension cord would melt into the snow!

I always liked the ones that bubbled in the little tubes when they got hot. Them were cool.

Hell, my kid remembers those light strings.

Damn

When he was four I caught him with a pocket full from the neighbors.

Made him go over and apologize, wound up getting drunk with
a retired NAVY guy.
