Get a giant spool and connect them all end to end and then just wind it up. Works really well. Source: we did that as kids and it was always a fight to see who had to wrap a big tree while dad holds the spool and we walk in circles til we fall down
Why divorce when you have perfectly good wire there to choke them out with?
@ThePandaPool , because it takes four hours to untangle the wire.
I wrap mine around some coat hangers, it keeps them relatively untangled
As much as I want to share this, I currently have a brother who was screwed over and left by his wife of one year (she's a felon and we didn't know long story ) and also my cousin cheated on her husband and left him, but I'm still friends with him online because he's a cool guy and they're both doing their Facebook spiraling. I don't want to cause more pain.
Find the ends and work your way though the tangle. A large piece of cardboard can be used to wind the cord around as you disentangle it. Also be grateful it's not yarn. Yarn tangles make Christmas light knots look like pretty woven pieces.
So, opposite of "tying the knot" I assume correctly?
Divorce the Christmas lights?
