I would not want to overuse anything vintage and valuable, but for modern light strings use as required.
Remembering that incandescent light strings are even less efficient than regular incandescent bulbs, and far, far behind CFL or LED lighting.
I use a couple of strings of home made LED lights all year round, most evenings.
