Nostalgic Americans Are Making Tru-Tone Retro Lights an Unlikely Holiday Hit

All the warmth and glow of the Christmases you remember, minus the aroma of smoldering ornaments

Most everyone who celebrates Christmas has fond memories of holiday time. Maybe it’s baking Christmas cookies or watching It’s a Wonderful Life on TV. Maybe it’s creating greeting cards or sipping eggnog by the fireplace.

But if you’re David Andora, the fond memory is that burning smell in the air as the janky Christmas tree lights began to smolder.
