If the Christmas light are arranged in a parallel circuit then when one bulb burst the other bulbs do not light up.
If the Christmas lights are arrange in a series circuit then when one bulb burst the other bulbs do not light up.
Testable Question: How does taking one of the bulbs in a parallel or series circuit affect the other bulbs
This is an example of a parrellel circut
This is an example of a series circuit
As you remove one light bulb in a series circuit the other two bulbs no longer produce any type of light. If you take on bulb out of a parallel the other two bulbs still produce some type of light.
The best type of circuit to use for a Christmas light is the parallel circuit the reason for this is because of brightness appears more and if one light bulb burst the other light will still produce light.
