When I grew up, the Christmas tree was magically random. We used the big C7 incandescent bulbs, with a mix of solid burning and TwinkleBrite bulbs. This was back in the day when the 'chasing'/programmed twinkle lights weren't a thing yet. So...the tree twinkled randomly.
After an unfortunate incident in which an overly dry tree got scorched (think big brown spots!) from the incandescents, I switched to the cooler LEDs and twinkles. But I've always missed the random individual twinkles. Everything switching off and on at the same time, or chasing each other, just isn't quite the same.
LED tech has come quite a distance in the past ten years, and I SWEAR that a year or two ago I saw an LED string that not only twinkled randomly/individually, but also changed colors on each bulb individually. I've never been able to find that string, though.
Does a random twinkle LED string exist? Or was I hallucinating?
