The holidays have finally arrived, which only means one thing, Christmas lights! Putting up Christmas lights isn’t the meaning of Christmas, but having them shine brightly from peak to peak brings the spirit of Christmas closer to your heart. No matter if you have been someone who has always put up LED Christmas lights or are the newbie in your neighborhood, The Christmas Light Emporium is here for you. In fact, to help you get started putting up your lights this Christmas, here at 13 expert tips you need to know to dazzle your home like never before.
- If you’re new to putting up Christmas lights, it’s easier to start small. Instead of going all out your first year lighting your home, choose two or three items, like trees, bushes or your porch to serve as focal points, then add new displays each year.
- Stay safe out there by using lights that are labeled with a UL. This stands for Underwriters Laboratories, and it ensures that you’re using lights that were made for outdoor use.
- Know what kind of lights are available for use outside. Believe it or not, there are lights available for every nook and cranny of not only your house but also your yard. Whether you’d prefer blinking lights, net lights for blanketing bushes and trees or simple LED Christmas light strands to line the roof of your home, a little holiday light knowledge can go a long way in helping you get the most bang for your buck.
