Last year I got a Christmas tree when the Christmas stuff was going bye-bye. It was 6.5 feet (1.98 meters) and had some lights (white-lights and colored lights) already built into it. We got some bigger Christmas bulbs to add to it. This is the first Christmas tree where we didn't go over-board at all with ornaments and even the red, gold, and green garlands kind of blend in. I wasn't super happy with the Christmas tree star as you have to shove branches into it to make it stand.
