Christmas lighting has sure come a long way from its beginnings decades ago. Today's miniature bulbs and C7 bulbs will be replaced in the future by long lasting LED light bulbs and other lighting technology that we may not even be aware of yet. Still, for now, the best value for the money spent is in the traditional forms of holiday lights. Many people can remember the days gone by when a bulb burned out, it caused the entire string to suddenly go dark. Naturally, each bulb needed to be checked to see if it was the one who went out. Well, you can expect virtually all sets these days to remain working even after losing a bulb. Still, when you need to get replacement bulbs, where can you find them? They may be easy to find in November, but what about August or even April or May? We have Christmas bulb replacements available all year long, in all major styles: C7 light bulbs, C9 light bulbs, and miniature christmas lights, as well as certain novelty types such as bubble lights.
Miniature holiday bulbs are the most popular as they are used in normal christmas strands, as well as chasing and icicle lights as well. Our replacement bulbs come in 5 packs under items HB07908 (replaces bulbs on 20 light sets) and HB89220 (replaces bulbs on 50, 100, 150, or more sets)). Both of these packs contain five clear bulbs and are stocked throughout the year. If you want colored light bulbs, you would need to purchase a complete set in the number of bulbs on the strand you have at home, and use the bulbs from the strand to replace your burned out ones.
C7 bulbs and C9 bulbs are also known as "the really big christmas bulbs." Most are 120 volt, so they can be used on any size strand. Generally, they come in 25 packs, and in many different colors. Amber, blue, clear, fuchsia / pink, green, purple and red, to name a few. If you are ready to invest in a super long life, low energy LED version of this bulb, you can click here, or simply search for "LED C7 Christmas" in our general search. All C7 bulbs have candelabra bases and all C9 bulbs have intermediate bases (also known as E17 bases). The C9 bulbs are the larger ones, in case you may be having trouble telling the difference.
