This is Merrillee wishing everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS.
Every year at Christmas, I have a fun time decorating my house, and that includes putting up the outside lights. Net lights are a wonderful invention, and I put them on all the bushes that are along the sides and front of my house. I wrap a couple of trees with lights, string the smaller trees out front with lights and hang several lighted wreaths. I also put icicle lights around the screened porch that encloses our pool. So when I finish, I light up our little corner of the neighborhood. But it seems that a few days after I get everything done, one or more strings of lights decide to burn out. Then I have to scramble to find replacement lights or have a dark space right in the middle of the bushes or on the wrapped tree. Why is it that the middle lights are always the ones to burn out? How do people with large displays such as these keep their lights from burning out?
I enjoy putting out lights myself, and I love to drive around and look at other people's Christmas lights. Do you? Do you string lights for Christmas, and what do you do if lights burn out. Do you replace them or let them go?
