Christmas Lights help??

Well I finished putting all the lights up on the house and plugged them in and BOOOOM. They flashed on and turned off.

After checking all 400000 lights, I realized there is two fuses in the plugs...

I replaced the bad one and the same thing happened.

What the hell is happening?
HELP!

Check your alternator and flux capacitor. If that doesn't work you're screwed

I just read the lights I'm using insist on 70 lights per outlet, so i'm going to have to run extension cords all over -_-

Bigger fuse! Sure it's a fire hazard, but true men don't sweat such stuff. Try a 50 amp fuse.

I picked up some LED christmas lights at target pretty cheap last year and you can run like 500ft worth of lights from one outlet with those.
