We are all another year older, I guess. It looks like all the bulbs are working this year.
When I was hanging our real Christmas lights at home last weekend, I got three strings going under the eves of the house. One was burned out, so I went and got a replacement out of the bag. As soon as the new one went in it went ZAP, and burned the fuses out all down the line. I had to go to radio shack and get new fuses for them. I guess it's better than bursting into flames.
At least our online lights don't suffer from similar problems, and they don't make me go up and down a ladder about a hundred times in one day.
