My moms trees always looked like a hot mess... tinsel EVERYWHERE.. the more tinsel the better. We had those old bubble lights that would overheat... safety was of no concern in the old days. LOL! Someone mentioned the real candles.. my grandmother always had those. It was like a fat alligator clip with a little candle holder. I remember it exactly cause thats how my grandpa caught his head on fire. LOL!! He was putting in more little metal ball ornaments and I guess got to close to the open flame. Its a wonder we all didnt burn up in fiery glory on Christmas eve with the shoddy decorations we had back when!
