I hate Christmas lights
Yeah, yeah, they look so pretty on people's houses and on the tree. I love looking at them and decorating is my favorite part of Christmas.
But -- I just spent hours putting pine roping on my fence along with strings of little white lights and adorable candy cane striped bows on each fence post.
First, the roping was just a l-i-t-t-l-e too short, so I has to fill a gap with wire and a branch from the spruce tree.
Then I go in the house, flip the switch, walk out to admire my work -- and half of one string of lights doesn't friggin' work. I was tempted to tear down the whole mess.
Now that I have calmed down, I am just going to buy another string and replace the dud. Thank heavens it's on an end and not in the middle. And yes, I did test it before I out it out there. And no, I don't have enough patience to find the problem and fix it.
