I like vintage decorations. As a kid I remember we had some pre-war Christmas tree lights. They were really big compared with modern ones. The problem was that you couldn't get spares and they were mains voltage (220/240) connected in series. So any that failed meant none worked. Of course you could shorten the wire and reduce the number of lamps, but that pushed up the voltage of each lamp which was highly dangerous!

My best memory was making popcorn strings for the Christmas tree. After Christmas we would hang the strings out in the front yard and watch the sparrows brave the snow for an easy meal.
