How can I buy good, decent christmas lights?

I put my Christmas tree up tonight, and went to put the lights on. After I had them strung, they went out! They worked in the stores, but now they don't. Please tell me I'm not the only one that has this problem every year.

    LEDs are the newest thing in lighting and they do not look to be leaving any time soon.

    There are as many different quality LED products as there prices.

    It seems to be the consensus of the members of the forum that the best place to buy LED lights are from

    Action LIghting is another good source.

    I have purchased from both vendors and can vouch for both.

    If you are interested in conventional lights, the favorite brand are the energy savers sold by Target. You can get more lights in a series than other brands because they are a lower wattage without a lower quality (at the same price).

    The word on the street is to avoid the Walmart Blue minis due to quality issues.

    Source(s): EDIT: If your lights went out after plugging them in, it could be a fuse that is situated in the male end of the plug. You should not connect more than 3 strands of incandescent mini lights together. Otherwise, it could cause the fuse to break.

    Oh no, lol it happens to everyone! Yes its frustrating but just wiggle the blinker bulb that usually fixes it.There is nothing seriously wrong just a lose bulb most likely causing a loose connection.Too early for stressing so just go slow and you will find the problem >Merry Christmas!

    sometimes you plug to many cords together and it blows the fuses...check that first. The fuses are in the plug and extra come on the cord in a plastic bag.
