Christmas lights- half on, half off!! why?
Why are my Christmas light only lighting half way? These are not old lights, yet I have half of my lights this year only lighting half way up the string? it does happen every year but not this much so I guess I'm especially frustrated. I can't be the only one this happens to. If it is a blown fuse wouldn't the whole string be burnt out? if it is a missing bulb that would be easy to see, and these days a burnt out bulb is not supposed to make a whole section go out, right? Is there some trick I am unaware of to get these things to light completely for more than one season at a time? There is not a lot of extra money this year so I can't just run out and replace all these, what do you do to fix them?
