How does a light circuit affect the strand of Christmas lights with a burned out bulb ?

I noticed that no matter what you did the bulbs would stay lit until you removed the battery.

This is evidence of the parallel circuit working when you disconnect a bulb.

Series Circuit

When one bulb goes out they all do. If the series circuit has a bulb that breaks then all bulbs on the circuit will go out.

conclusion

In conclusion the parallel circuit is the better circuit. When one bulb bursts or goes out the other will stay lit. With a series circuit when one goes out all will go out. Another reason is parallel circuits catch fire much less than a series circuit.
