The holidays are a wonderful time of year, but they can also be dangerous when it comes to hanging Christmas lights. See this list of the most common mistakes people make when installing light displays to ensure you and your family have a safe and joyous holiday season!
1. Not planning ahead
Instead of taking all your lights out of their storage boxes and immediately throwing them up on your roof, reserve a few moments to plan out your display beforehand. Take a walk around your property to note things like access to power and the ability to attach lights in their desired location. Think about whether you want to use automatic timers for the lights, and set a date to take them down after the holidays are over.
