Are those led lights? If so, I had a set to fill my tree and they are alright, I got all the same led's this year and like them.

LEDs they are. I've had plain white lights for the last few seasons, and decided to upgrade to some colored LEDs last year. The tree is a bit bright at times, but I love the way the lights look on the ornaments.

My family started using artificial trees when I was a kid. We traveled from GA to NC every year for the Holidays, usually for at least a week. It just wasn't safe to leave a real tree with lights. (My Dad was very early into the lights on a timer deal, so the lights would come on every day. Not a good plan if no one will be around to water a real tree.)

The only hazard my Dad then found himself in was that my Mother never throws anything away. So now he gets to set up multiple trees around the house for her different themes! We finally convinced her to lose a the original 70's/80's era trees just in the last five years or so!

After moving to NC, we usually had a live cedar tree cut for the front porch. I'm not doing one this year though. This is the first year without my Grandmother, and I'm trying to keep things similar yet different. Now they can make artificial trees that are so incredibly real and they stay pretty when the real ones start falling apart. We've also found it is much better for our allergies. I think we are all using artificial trees in my immediate family now. (It's late..I'm rambling again!)

Well we finally put the entire tree up yesterday. With 3 of us working on it we finished it all within the day. Here are some photos of the process for the putting it together. We start with half a tree on the ground and then put on some lights and decorations before standing it up. Then it is filled in and decorated after being secured to the wall.
