Christmas mini project.

Well i have an idea in my mind about a mini christmas project but i dont know how to make it.

The idea.

It will be an arduino with a buzzer ,a small lcd display (16x2 probably) ,a big red push button and some red leds.

What this thing is going to do ?

Every time you connect it to your pc though usb port and you push the red button it will tell you how many

days , months,minutes ,etc are left for the christmas eve ,new years eve .

Xmas Lights Tester

So, you accidentally stick a regular clear bulb in your Christmas lights (fairy lights [US] ?) instead of a fuse bulb. Next time there's a bit of a surge, there's no discernable weak point in your circuit and it takes out more than one bulb. Where do you start debugging that?

Sure, you could sit with a multimeter and probe all the bulbs to find the duff ones. Have you ever tried to attach multimeter probes to a fairy light bulb?!?! It's a nightmare. Specially when you only have 8 fingers and two thumbs.
