I have white lights now, but I like the multi-colors as well. The nice thing about the white ones though is they don't overpower the colors of the ornaments ( and I have overload on ornaments). I'm trying to figure out whether to do white or multi-color if I do the tree outside this year!

My DH decorates outside with multi-colored and most of the trees inside are in multi-colored. One tree is decorated in purple and gold, and it has all purple lights. My daughter has a purple tinsel tree for her room with purple lights, and my son has a matching blue one for his room with blue lights. Yes, I know, I have an addiction to Christmas trees.....:holiday07

Before we had kids we had all blue lights, but then the kids wanted colored ones so we switched (actually now we have 2 trees and the smaller one is the way I like it)
I think I'll try defying gravity .... and you can't pull me down!!!

White lights for the main tree in the living room and the snowman tree I want to do this year, the kids have desk size (small) trees in their room with colored lights

We do both. First I string the small white lights and then we string the larger color lights. It looks so pretty. Because we get a real tree I only plug the white lights in for the afternoon and late at night and when the kids are up or we have company I plug them all in. It is really neat with both, it gives the tree two different looks :)

It depends on the theme, but I'll say white because I usually always have a strand of white in all my trees.

I definitley like the gingerbread house effected the colored lights give.

Ooh, an all white tree with solid color lights would be really pretty!

We're all white lights at our house except for one strand around the center of one tree, that's red. I am liking the idea of all white lights with some bigger, colored lights on the outside of the tree, tho.

If DH had his way, the lights would look like they were choking the tree, you wouldn't see any actual branches, just outlines of them covered in wires. :yup:

All colored lights. I can't stand for my tree to blink either. I want it lit all the time. For the blinking, I use motion lights around the ceiling in my living room.

:yup: I like the bigger colored lights too. The problem with the small colored lights, for me, is that they look pastel.

White??? I LOVE clear lights! I think all the color of the ornaments looks nice against the clear lights, and they can't blink :holiday07

We did! I have a small travel-themed tree in our guest bathroom. I use all of the ornaments that we've collected on vacations on that tree. It makes it a little easier when traveling to know exactly what kind of souvenir I'm going to get, and ornaments take up less space than t-shirts! :)

we use clear on the tree, and colored outside. we tried colored on the tree, and it seemed too dark, I ran clear up the middle to brighten it up from the inside. I use double the amount of lights that year...ggrr so from now on it clear on the tree all the time.;)
