Keep-Your-Holidays-Smooth-and-Decorate-Early

If you love holiday decorations, then December is your time to shine, literally. It’s always a good idea to sort through your decorations in advance. Start your Christmas decorating early to have a smooth holiday season.

Test Your Lights

The sooner you test your lights, the better. If you must replace any nonworking strands, you can hit the stores before the Christmas rush. This way, you have plenty of options for lights and décor.

Hang Your Decorations

To ease your mind for the rest of the season, hang up the decorations early. Wreaths, lights, garland and other décor items can help you create a Christmas wonderland. When hanging lights, make sure that you are using exterior-rated lighting. Also, if you can, plug them into an outdoor outlet.
