Actually, the answer is 24. Sounds like a lot of fodorites, I know. I believe most of us would (all by ourselves) just light a candle and be done with it!!!

bright witty ones.

Dear Fodorites,

I am new to this board, so I hope that you won't find my questions too stupid.

Me and my family (87, 80, 66, 59, 44, 40, 21, 19, 5) want to change a light bulb. We haven't done this before.

Where is the best place to do this?

Should we hire a guide? Take a tour?

How much will it cost?

Is March/April better than Sept/Oct?

Can we wear tennis shoes? Are blue jeans OK, or do we have to go formal - long sleeve shirt?

TIA

We would like to change lightbulbs in England, Ireland, France, and Italy. We have 10 days, and would like to see all the bulbs. Can anyone recommend the best bulbs? Are the bulbs different in France? I heard that the bulbs in France have attitude...

My screw-thread American bulbs don't have pins, can I use them in England?

What are the must-see lightbulbs in Paris?

Ira you certainly must wear black!

Fodor's moved this thread from Europe, I've noticed.

However many fodorites attend the GTG to change the lightbulb. If the editor shows up, then add 1.

thanks Dayenu, I had a good laugh.

"If I buy the bulbs three months in advance on the SNCF site, do I get a good price?"
