How do you determine the perfect length of Christmas lights?

Also question is, how many feet of Christmas lights do I need for my house?
A good rule of thumb is 100 lights for every 1-1/2-ft of tree or shrub you want to cover. So a 6-ft evergreen needs at least 400 lights for a basic level of lighting.
One may also ask, how long are Christmas lights? So here's an honest answer to the question: A string of top-quality, professional grade Christmas lights can reasonably be expected to last for roughly 6 or 7 seasons. That assumes that the lights are removed and stored during the off-season, and not left up year round.
Moreover, can I cut Christmas lights to length?
The lights are designed so each bulb receives all 120 volts and each bulb has a direct route to power, meaning they can be cut to any length without overpowering and burning out bulbs. With the lights unplugged cut wires with wire cutters between the bulbs and cap each end with wire connectors.
Why does only half of my LED Christmas lights work?
If one of your LED light strands isn't working, it's probably just because it has a bad bulb. If one bulb dies, it can cause the rest of the strand to stop working. The only way to fix the problem is to find the bad bulb. Sometimes only a section of the lights will go out, making your job pretty easy.
