I think I have that. I always have the lights plugged in while I put them on the tree as it's easier to see placement. But I think I"m going blind. Almost done.

They must be bright! Ours most definitely are not. LOL

I drove back from Mum's on Wednesday along a wet motorway into the setting sun. I was blind then too.

They're not particularly bright. But when you have to keep looking at them, your eyes feel funny.

There's like 1300 lights on the tree. Or more. I ran out after the 3 boxes of 400 lights. So I had to use another string and I don't know how many are on it. Might be 150. Several bulbs need replacing. They're a humongous pain to do though.

WOW! That's a lot of lights on one tree! We had the LED lights on our tree last year. Ive decided I don't like LEDlights on a tree..to me they just aren't the same as our mini white lights so we went back to our old ones...but we only have about 300 on our 6 ft tree.

LED lights are horrible! They just don't have that happy twinkle. And they give hubby a headache, especially the blue ones.

I have 7 1/2 ft tree, but I also string them in and out along the branches (so like going from trunk to tip - only it's not all the way to the trunk).
