My fairy/angel has a real candle. Not lit, mostly.

The thing is, when you only put the tree up on Christmas Eve (as per tradition in a lot of Europe), it's generally still very fresh and wet, so not a huge fire hazard. And, as pointed out, they are pretty sparse. Also, the candles are pretty small and were they to fall, the chances of them staying alight are not huge. But still.....

Tree, from the top of the stairs so it's a weird perspective. Also the ceiling is at an angle. The tree is 8 ft.



House. You can't see how the bottom row twinkles at odd programmable intervals. Note above tree in the window:

That's the way to confuse the neighbors.

There's still time. I bet they're about $2 at Lowes now. Or just cruise the streets -someone's probably already thrown one out by now that you could squeak a few more days out of!

why do the lights look like they only go up the middle of the tree. Interesting way to do it.

I just like the look. Plus, it casts a cool shadow. Plus, it leaves the branches available for ornaments, and keeps the wires invisible.
