Dimming Down the Tree

"Around Christmas-time over 20 years ago, we decided to add a dimmer to the dining room light. I hooked it up up and turned the breaker back on to show my wife. I twisted the switch with great pride. Unfortunately, she tapped me and pointed to the living room, where the Christmas tree was lighting and dimming, lighting and dimming."
