Hi Mefi. Im faced with the task of installing Christmas lights on a outdoor 30ft tree. Does anyone know where I can find tips or best practices? Looking for simple guides, pictures, videos, etc. I'm doing this alone and would appreciate the help!

Quick, what's the strangest/most unusual/coolest holiday tree topper you've ever seen? Links appreciated, bonus points for light-up. No religious symbols, please.

My family and I are going to drive around the Philly / South Jersey area to look at Christmas lights. Pretty displays are good, garish displays are better! (we hear Hershey PA has some kickass lights, but it's unfortunately too far away for our purposes.)

I'm organizing a Christmas light convoy tomorrow night. Basically a bunch of cars driving around town visiting the best lit up houses. I want to assign a ridiculous task to be performed at each house? Any ideas? [more inside]

I have a Christmas tree with lots of lights on it. The lights are wired in series and are currently not working. So somewhere on this set of lights one or more lights are not functioning.
It is a major pain, swapping bulbs for known good ones or peering into each and every bulb with a torch to see if you can spot whether the filiment is still there.
What is the easiest way to find the non functioning bulbs and get the lights working again?

I am looking to wrap a 12' dogwood's trunk and branches to get an effect similar to this
. But if a max of 3 strands of 100 mini lights connected end to end is the recommendation for safety, how would I configure it?

How many strands of Christmas tree lights (100 lights/strand) can I safely plug into a single outlet and/or connect to each other?
