Remember these kind of lights- where they were glass bulbs and they were all different colors and they were a lot bigger then the plastic and tiny ones of today!? These bulbs were always my favorite- but unfortunately they would get very, very, VERY hot! One of my favorite games that I used to play with these Christmas lights, was to see who could hold onto them the longest when they were turned on.
Here is how we played--- I would gather my 2 youngest sisters.. Elizabeth and Emily- when I was probably about 16- so they were 5-7... and we would play the game who can hold on the longest. They would each put a light bulb in their hand from the tree- and we would hold onto them, and whoever let go first would lose. I always held on the longest, because I was smart and I would unscrew the light bulb just enough to turn it off, without them seeing and wa-la.. I did not get burned:) A little tricky?? Maybe! But- they thank me for it now- in showing them how to have a good time!! They love me soooo much:) I'm the BEST sister EVAH!!!
