I think one of the things that I find most frustrating about Christmas is putting lights on the tree. It has been my job for as long as we've been married. I managed quite well, until last year, when Neil brought home a 7 1/2 foot tree and it took me half the day AND a ladder to get the lights up. Well, when trees went on sale last year, he suprised me by bringing home a pre-lit, 7 1/2 foot tree- YIPPEE! Best of all, it comes with a remote control, which switches from white lights, to coloured lights, or both white and coloured lights - hallelujah!! One thousand lights and I didn't have to string one and no more arguing about which is best, white lights or coloured lights - I just have to hide the remote LOL! All I needed was my little helper, our grandson Corson, and all is well.
