I’ve always had a very modest display of lights around christmas time – the odd rope light and a few fairy lights and flashing stars and santas in the windows. If I want to be totally tragic and kitch, but not as bad as the Griswald’s family christmas, does anyone have any advice as to new christmas lights etc
There are a range of shops that sell lights - from the Big W or Target type lights – or cheap Asian shops – or exclusive shops like the Christmas Warehouse. To me lights are lights, but is there any different in quality or longevity if you buy cheap dodgies or pay a bit more? While I could save my money and buy nothing, if I wanted to splurge slightly, what should I go for?
I’d like them to last a few years at least without falling apart at the first rain. (They will be pulled down after christmas of course, but i wouldn’t want something to spit and fizz first time a drop of rain hits it).
