O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging;

The easiest way to get out of the house, recycle and dispose of it!

Andysworld! Advent Calendar - Dec 12 - Traditional Christmas Tree this year

Monday, December 12th, 2011

We normally purchase a Nordmann Fir , they claim they do not drop needles. But this year we’ve decided to purchase a Traditional Norway Spruce real christmas tree, I think they look better, and have a much better shape!

Another change this year, we usually purchase from Boretree Nurseries, York, but this year we’ve purchased locally from Halifax Estates.

Vintage/Rare Pifco Christmas Tree Lights

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

This morning, I’ve been using a digital volt meter to buzz through the Christmas Tree lights, a regular Christmas tradition, because they’d failed, a bulb had blown! So meter in hand, checking through 20 bulbs working out which bulb had blown, the first fuse bulb had blown, and the last twentieth bulb in thre set had blown. It was quick thinking I purchased many replacement sets, man years ago, when  Woolworths were still trading.

These light sets are vintage (42+ years old)  Rare Christmas Tree Lights manufactered by Pifco. Pifco manufactuered many plastic items in the 70s, and bicycle lights, and also Christmas Tree Lights.

Modern christmas tree lights don’t have any shades, and are just bulbs or more modern LEDs, and I rather boring in my opinion. It gives our Christmas Tree that retro look…
