Putting on Christmas lights is a huge family event for some people and some people take it very seriously. Every year, there are thousands of families and households who put on extensive Christmas lights on their respective homes. All in all, it comes down to the individual and what extent they want to go to when putting on these lights but many people go above and beyond. However, kids who grow up in homes with nice Christmas lights really love it.
- A good guideline is to use a hundred lights for each foot of height of your tree, IE 500 lights for a 5’ tall tree.
- Plug your lights in, both in order to make sure they work and to be able to check how they look on the tree.
- Use the branches to hide the green plastic plug and associated “dead zone” when connecting multiple strings of lights.
“If your lights aren’t hanging exactly where you want them, wrap a little floral wire around the cord and branch to hold it in place. Bend the loose ends of the wire towards the back of the tree to prevent any injuries.”
