To prevent outdoor Christmas lights from shorting out in the rain, it’s crucial to use lights that are specifically designed for outdoor use. These lights are built to withstand various weather conditions. Additionally, ensure all connections are well insulated using waterproof tape or plastic bags. It’s also advisable to plug your lights into a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlet for added safety. Regularly check your lights for any signs of damage and replace any faulty bulbs promptly.
