If the Christmas lights are arranged in a parallel circuit then when 1bulb bursts the other bulbs light up.

All the lights lit up and worked.

the lights all stayed lit even when one bulb busted or didn't work.

If the Christmas lights are arranged in a series circuit then when 1 bulb bursts the other bulbs don't light up.

All the lights lit up.

When one bulb was busted the rest did not light up.

The best circuit to use for Christmas lights is the parallel circuit because when one bulb bursts the rest stay lit and with the series circuit when one don't light up the others dont either.
