    This is why you always test it before putting it up.

    Remember Roger Rabbits rule of funny, “Only if it’s funny”.

    We never did more than just lights on the tree, but I can remember spending half the day just getting things untangled and the trying to locate the bad bulb(s). Dad considered those tasks “kid’s work”.

    Um…wouldn’t you try them before you put them up?

    I hope John feels properly chastised by his son. Such language!

    The moral of the story is:
    -
    a) Plug in your lights before you put them up.
    -
    b) If you know there is a bad string, throw away the bad string instead of packing it away with all the other good strings.
    -
    c) Don’t curse in front of your child who thinks Christmas is jolly.
    -
    d) If you are using a ladder to put up Christmas lights, it’s a lot easier if you stand on the ladder instead of moving the ladder in place after you have put up the lights.
    -
    e) If John’s “It is??” response to Michael’s saying nothing in Panel 2 is any indication, apparently putting up Christmas lights is a great time for you and your son to practice your telepathy.

    You can still get mulitcolor lights and LEDs at the stores. Or, you can buy some old sets at yard sales, or buy multicolor bulbs and replace those bland white ones.

    When I was a kid, holiday lights were all in different, pretty colors.
    Nowadays, they’re all just white.
    BLAH!!


    I’ve heard that it’s because the white ones are less expensive to run.

    Happy last evening of Chanukah, SUSAN!

    I’ve never heard that. I think it’s just trends or personal taste. I prefer white lights on the tree and inside, and colored lights outside. More fun that way.

    We try to tell people – put your lights up in October or even September when it’s a nice warm day. You don’t have to light ‘em, just put ’em up. Or be like John and wait for 10 below zero day when it’s snowing and the wind is blowing!
