Just had to share this wonderful old Christmas photo, courtesy of LOC and Hyda, from 1922, Mrs. Reiser's Christmas tree. It's been sliced and diced so you can appreciate all the toys on the table--and yes, it does look like there are LIT candles on that tree! Click on the images below.
Which reminded us of Paul Race's great article on dangerous Christmas decorations: Don't Try This At Home (Anymore)--click on the link http://www.familychristmasonline.com/trees/ornaments/dangerous/dangerous_decorations.htm
