We bought this pre-lit tree in 2004 at Wal-Mart for $75. It has been with my family for 16 years, two houses, up and down into basements, and in and out of storage sheds. It is battered and bruised, touched up more and more every year. I’m not even sure how many of the original lights still work. We just keep adding a new string of lights every year and try to blend it in. There are probably four or five different sets on there, and miraculously they manage to match. Everyone has their annual Christmas traditions. Me fixing up this now Frankenstein-esque tree is one of them. To be decorated at a later date.
