What we thought were faulty Christmas lights turned out to be intentional

We were outside Next in the Meadows the other day looking at ‘strips’ of decorative lights in the windows.  It looked as if loads of the lamps had failed;  “They’ll pack up entirely before Christmas” we thought.

Anyway, only a day later we looked at Next’s shop in Camberley’s Park Street, and, low and behold, the same thing.  We sneaked into the shop, and had a quick chat with a very helpful lady who was dressing the window.  We gathered that the ‘faulty light’ effect was intentional;  and, now that we know that, we find it’s a more interesting effect than would be produced by a continuous strip of lights.  (But, we did learn that one of the strips IS indeed faulty, and it can’t be switched on without upsetting the others.  So our initial impression was just a little bit right!)
