One year, when I lived in Denmark, my landlady went away for Xmas and she lent me her old-fashioned ornaments. They included some candle holders for hanging on the tree. That year I lit my tree with candles. It was really pretty, but we never left the room with the candles lit.

Our tinsel doesnt seem to make much mess at all

In the past we have bought cheaper tinsel and that was very messy

The tinsel we have now is more expensive and does not seem to shed which is great

I take it you don't have a 5yr old and a 10yr old that dance around with it on their heads

The first Christmas my husband and I spent together we had a little tree with one nice ornament, lots of candy canes, and lots of tinsel. Hubby brought it home on top of the 79 Ford Pinto. We didn't have much, but we had each other. Wonder where those pictures are????...

Our first tree was red, blue and silver. Dad gave us the tree and I cut the Pabst logo out of twenty beer cans as ornaments, a box of tinsel and a string of clear lights. I scrounged an Angel for the top from Mom's cache of old Christmas decorations. We got more fancy in later years and now we are down to no tree.

A friend from Germany still lights candles on her tree. I always stop by on Boxing Day evening to see it lit. It is very pretty.

You must have had big kitties--the icicle tinsel (obviously was having a dyslexic moment this morning!) are about 6 inches long.

That would have been Shrek...I'm more of a Gin and Tonic if I am going to have something. O'course at that time, I think I was drinking Rum and Coke...
