I miss the old lead/tin icicles which were outlawed in 1972. I never put up a tree of my own till I was about 30. When I put icicles on the tree I noticed that they didn't hang heavy. And when I turned on the ceiling fan(I'm in Texas now and it can be warm in December) they were a tangled mess. Of course, you are probably thinking what I've been told recently:who in the hell puts icicles on their tree?
