    Angry Grrrrrr!!!!

    Well...I've just discovered the first "issue" with the tree! One whole strand of 100 mini-lights is not working. Last night I kind of thought there were a couple weird "dark" spots, and today it was revealed that it was not just my imagination! Now I have to take it off and re-string another one...while dodging garland and ornaments!!! This is not going to be simple!

    I feel your pain. One year I tested all the lights and they worked fine. After the tree was fully decorated a whole string went out. As Murphy's law would have it that string was RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TREE. I didn't bother taking everything down and starting over. I just joked that my tree had a waist.

    Well...I have successfully removed the broken lights. On the upside, I am replacing with TWICE as many!! I found 2 new strands in my storage box out in the garage!! I will tackle the challenge when my little guy goes down for nap!

    Oh, how sad! But your reward will be more lights.

    I agree

    I try to spread the lights as much as I can to avoid dark spots if the lights fail. I go up and down and round instead of just round and round. That way if a string of lights stops working you can't really tell.

    Merry Snowy Christmas

    My options will be limited since I am going to be working around existing ornaments and garland.
