Time to Finally Give Up and Just Replace the Freakin' Christmas Lights


Christmas lights...sigh. How do those people with the insanely awesome displays do it? If you have 50 strands, 40 of them are guaranteed to be half out next season no matter how carefully you put them away. Then you try to fix them - checking for blown fuses, loose bulbs, loose sockets, and cut wires - usually wasting a good 20 minutes on each strand. It's a craptacular experience, and by the end your hands are cracked and bleeding. So we're slowly replacing the "old" (i.e. used once or twice) lights with the stupidly expensive LEDs, but at least we should be able to get some more use out of them.


Leave your thoughts.
