Will and I put up our Christmas tree last weekend, and it looked great. We've been enjoying it all week, until last night, when half of two separate strands of lights started blinking on and off. Today the ones that are blinking are now dead. Grrr.
And this is why, as much as I reduce/reuse/recycle, I have the urge to throw all the lights away at the end of each year. I'm now going to take off the ornaments and re-string with new lights. Who said you only get to put the christmas tree up one time per year?
