J's conversation about the Christmas lights got me thinking. All my Christmas light have all been hand me downs from my parents. I got all my dads ornaments and such when he died which included the tree lights. I also got some from my mom when she bought new ones so now I dont know which ones are which. I have specific ones that I use on the tree every single year now though. But I have no idea how old they all are. I have only had to change the bulbs out here and there.
My question is, how often for safety purposes do you think Christmas tree lights should be switched out? Our tree is never ever left on when we arent home and only on over night on Christmas Eve.
This of course comes on the heels of my uncles house catching fire while they were all home. Losing my grandfather to a house fire doesnt help either. So now Im super paranoid about fire.
