Ok, I'll be the first to admit that I'm not up on Christmas lights and 
decorations.  My primary response to the holidays, and Christmas in 
particular, is to ignore them/it to the fullest extent possible.  I 
haven't bought Christmas lights in probably 25 years.  Given that, I was 
under the impression that:
1.  Pretty much all Christmas lights these days are LED; and
2.  Series wired Christmas lights went out sometime around the middle of 
the first Eisenhower administration.  Shunts? Seems like a solution 
looking for a problem.

BTW, thanks for the answers on internet Rx.  Pretty much confirmed my 
suspicions.  I guess I'll  take an old fashioned paper prescription to 
Wally World.
