Don't trash old, unwanted Christmas lights


Maybe you pulled out your Christmas lights and found them in a giant, knotted ball, “Christmas Vacation” style.

Or maybe you’ve had it trying to find the one burned out bulb that’s throwing off the whole string. Maybe you’re just ready for new lights.

Whatever you do, don’t trash the old strings.
