When I went to plug in our Christmas lights this evening, half of the strand wasn't working. As I did some investigating I found out that our lights had melted together and into the carpet. The lights are around the window in the room that Maddie sleeps in. The strand was too big for the window, so I bundled the extra and set them on the floor. I guess I didn't think that that would be a fire hazard. Well, it is. Make sure you NEVER leave your Christmas lights unattended. I think we were lucky that a fire didn't break out.
