Just a quick post to erg everyone to have an equally quick spin with their Christmas tree lights before you put them up. It is the most fun Ive had out of the stupidity of Christmas in at least a year.
The photographic results arent to bad either as can be seen in this pic i took earlier . If anyone has any of those lights that change colour i would love to see a pic please smile

Have a good time in the name of Jesus (or Santa whatever floats your boat).

By the way if your trees up already take the light off specially biggrin
