Christmas Lights from 1970

Day 15: Since I talked about trimming the tree yesterday I thought I would post various Christmas lights from 1970. The one I wanted to talk about is on the last sheet in this post. They are Christmas bubble lights. My aunt had these on their tree in the 70s and I thought it was pretty unique. I guess when the lights get warm they start to bubble. That always fascinated me when I was younger. :)

    A blast from the past! I don’t think I ever saw the bubble lights. They don’t seem familiar to me. I am happy about the LED lights we have now. Much more efficient, and less of a fire hazard!

      The bubble lights were neat to watch. Then again if it was heat that caused the lights to bubble… maybe not the greatest thing for a Christmas tree lol.

      I think the holly optic ones would have been neat too. The optic stuff was very brittle though. I had an optic lamp by my bed in the 70s and that stuff was constantly breaking off and then it would stick in your foot like a splinter.
