Christmas in the olden days

When I was a kid, nearly every middle class home had at least one of these ceramic trees. As I recall, there was a small white bulb inside the tree and the colored plastic "bulbs fit into holes in the form, so it would light up as if it were a real tree. I vaguely recall amusing myself by rearranging the colors. You could buy them at the bargain store back then for not much money. I suppose nowadays it would cost a small fortune to purchase one that still works. But if I ever got my own place, I would kind of like to have one.
