    Mine has built in small white lights.

    My former trees used to have the small flashing coloured musical lights hahaha

    My parents use the larger bulbs along with bubbler lights:

    I like the little colored ones for the Christmas tree. Plain white or plain blue looks classier I guess but the little bright multicolored ones are just happy :)

    P.S. candy cane fudge is delicious.

    I like tiny white and steady. But I also like tiny colored. I always have a debate with myself every year. colored or white, colored or white. Sometimes I do one on the tree and the other on the stair railing or outside. I put garland on those railings with lights. And I have a little tree on my front porch. I think I tend to lean more toward the white so last year it was all white. Probably do the same again.

    I like small colourful lights. But the tree we have now came pre-lit with small white lights. We couldn't find a nice, full tree either pre-lit with colourful lights or one that we could have put them on. The only nice trees that year that we could find all came with white lights already on them. The others were all scraggly looking.

    I haven't put my tree up in several years, but always about 1200 tiny white lights and about 500 little purple ones, sometimes a few strands of gold and pink.

    I've always grown up with colored lights, so I guess they just feel more like Christmas to me. Ian and I had white lights on our first tree, but we switched to colored lights the next year. I think the white lights are really pretty and classy, but the colored ones are my favorite :)

    I like tiny and white, but I always get outvoted.

    Having said that, we didn't do a tree last year, and I don't know if we will this year. Gusto definitely couldn't have handled it then - I'm still not sure he won't be a pain in the neck.

    We have blue LED or soemthing like that and they are textured small lights and we will put a strand of white. We have all blue and silver balls for the tree as well.

    We have colored and white for outside.
