Pre-Lit Trees


Pre-lit Christmas trees are great
As long as all of the lights burn
But when the lights begin to go
There's a lesson to be learned

Though you admired your pre-lit tree
So beautifully all decked out
When the lights go out, the glow is gone
And your wife begins to pout

So off to Wal-Mart for replacements
Which you must carefully thread
Among the ornaments and pre-lit strands
Where all the lights are dead

After the holidays have passed
The tree now must come down
Minus all the pre-lit bulbs
Once all the connections are found

You finally get them off the tree
In a tangled mass on the floor
Dare you try to test them
To see if they'll burn any more

You decide the trash bin is better
And my advice to you would be
Save yourself some trouble
Don't buy a pre-lit tree

    Can't argue with the voice of experience! Thanks for sharing Curtis. I just make sure that it is me who is pre-lit - on spiked egg-nog - and not the tree. ;-)

    Joe: I appreciate you comment. I remember when I used to be pre-lit, but gave it up for health purposes. While I am now a tee-totaler, I can identify with the egg-nog days. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
