They are much easier for vandals to remove than other lights.
MJ bought many strands of LED lights this year to retire some of our incandescent lights: she likes the new lights, and doesn’t like me fixing the old ones. Fair enough.
Last night she noticed that a bunch of them were out.
Today I went to fix them, and found that someone had taken a single bulb out of 10 different strands, from one bush, close to the sidewalk – turning them off.
I suppose this could have happened with the older bulbs … but they were tough enough to get out that they didn’t require a little tab to hold them in place.
