Holiday Decorating/Light on pre-lit tree becoming extremely bright


Half a string of lights on my pre-lit tree burnt out, and now the other half is becoming extremely bright. What may be causing this, and should i worry about them burning up?

They will be burning out soon too.  When miniature lights go out, they should be replaced as soon as possible.  When each bulb burns out, it puts a strain on the other bulbs.

The cheapest way to replace a lot of bulbs is to buy a cheap set, and use the bulbs from it. You may need to remove the bulbs from the bases, and put them in the bases you pull out of your tree.

I can answer any question related to outdoor Christmas and Halloween decorating. It can range from the technical, as far as problems with wiring, how to fix light sets. It can also be asthetic, as far as color combinations, etc.


I have been decorating since I was 7 years old. I set up Christmas displays with over 32000 lights, tastefully done.
