Christmas Guys Fun Tip Friday #5

Well here we are in our 5th week of The Christmas Guys Fun Tip Friday! Get excited, I know I am. Today I will give you what may not seem like much of a Christmas light installation tip, but it will half way through putting up your Christmas lights. The tip is to layout your extension cords prior to putting up any Christmas lights. This will help you know what you are working with and where your power supply for your Christmas lights will start. This will also bring to light any difficulties of decorating that 3rd tree you want to do but don’t have enough extension cords. So before you begin you can decide to scrap Christmas decorating that 3rd tree or send someone to pick you up some additional lead cords for your Christmas light installation. Also if you have varying sizes of lead cords you can make sure you have the right length running to the right Christmas decoration before you have already placed it certain places to hide it from view. You can even draw yourself a little Christmas light installation map to help you out, I know we here at the Christmas Guys have and still do at times!

Christmas Guys Fun Tip Friday #3

Here we go again Christmasteers! It’s Matt the OG Christmas Guy again with another Friday Fun tip! I will continue with another tip about Christmas light installation today. This tip goes for any holiday decorating, including Halloween later this month. One of the most important things right up there with not rushing is the planning!

If you are decorating the exterior of your home then go outside before you ever even start untangling and testing last years lights! Get out there and look around. Look at the trees, bushes, shrubs, stairs, doors, garage, roof, pathways, fences, well covers and whatever else happens to be in your yard. Take a step back and picture what your entire Christmas light installation project will look like. Is there a main focal point you want the eyes drawn to? If so focus solely on that first and come up with a few ideas on different ways you can decorate it. If this is your main attraction it needs to be the best and most thought out area of your Christmas light display. Once you have a few ideas then think of how you can accent the main decoration with other things in your yard to brighten up your space and help add to the Christmas magic of your main attraction.

If you don’t have a main attraction then think of how you can decorate things so your home and property doesn’t appear too lopsided at night when those Christmas lights (or holiday lights) are the only thing people can see.

Planning ahead and having a solid few ideas swirling around your mind will make your Christmas light installation look better and go smoother once you finally figure out how many new lights you need to buy because you can’t untangle the old ones.

If you are decorating an interior planning ahead is also very important. Now some things are just natural due to family holiday traditions, like where to put the tree and mistletoe. Other than think through what you want. Maybe you saw some awesome garland decorating on Pinterest that you’re just dying to try out. Nice thick garland with lights around a stair case may look amazing but will it work in your home? Think will the garland when wrapped around the railing take up too much of the walking space causing your clothes or big winter jackets to constantly rub against or get caught on it? If so go with a thinner garland or scratch the idea in total. Is the garland going to have lights on it? Make sure you have somewhere not only to plug it in but where the cord won’t be laying right in your walk way just waiting for you midnight snack trip to make you stumble right down the stairs. Maybe you are thinking of live garland (great choice) it will look and smell so much like Christmas! But it will also start to dry out inside and start falling all over the place! If you want live garland inside the home make sure you don’t decorate too early so you don’t send your Christmas eve sweeping up needles instead of making memories with your family and friends.

In closing the Christmas Guys during your estimate will help walk you through these things if you don’t already know what you want.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!Christmas decor planning

 

Christmas Guys Fun Tip Friday #2

Welcome to the second Fun Tip Friday with the professional Christmas light installer Matt. Today I wanted to share a way to make hanging your own Christmas lights much more enjoyable! And the tip may seem easy but it is one of the most important things to remember to make sure you enjoy your time decorating for Christmas with your family. The tip is don’t do it and let the Christmas Guys! haha ok kidding the real tip is make sure you have enough time and aren’t rushed!

This means if you have to be done by a certain time, whether you have an appointment, dinner reservations or a party to get to then don’t start decorating if you fell like you NEED to be done with your Christmas lights and decorations by a certain time. Working on a specific and limited time supply is a sure fire way to make sure you have plenty of arguments and won’t enjoy decorating in the slightest as it will be associated with all the arguing.

So take your time, don’t rush it. If you start and aren’t able to finish then don’t worry, everything will still be there the next day just waiting for you to Christmas Magicfy it so it may shine and show off in all it’s glory! It takes a lot of time to decorate for Christmas, especially if you only do it once a year. If you think it will take you 2 hours to do then plan on 6 hours to complete the job. You will enjoy it much more getting done before you thought rather than having it take 3 hours longer than you thought. So to be safe at least double the time you think it will take you to decorate your home for the holidays!

Or if you just want all the beauty and magic of Christmas lights and Christmas decorations with out the headache then just call the Christmas Guys.

Hope you have a great day Christmasteers!

O Little Town of Bethlehem Lrics

O Little Town of Bethlehem

O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight

For Christ is born of Mary
And gathered all above
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love
O morning stars together
Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing to God the King
And Peace to men on earth

How silently, how silently
The wondrous gift is given!
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His heaven.
No ear may hear His coming,
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive him still,
The dear Christ enters in.

O holy Child of Bethlehem
Descend to us, we pray
Cast out our sin and enter in
Be born to us today
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell
O come to us, abide with us
Our Lord Emmanuel

O Holy Night Lyrics

O Holy Night

O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of our dear Saviour’s birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
‘Til He appear’d and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

Fall on your knees! O hear the angel voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born;
O night divine, O night, O night Divine.

Led by the light of Faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming,
Here come the wise men from Orient land.
The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger;
In all our trials born to be our friend.

He knows our need, to our weakness is no stranger,
Behold your King! Before Him lowly bend!
Behold your King, Before Him lowly bend!

Truly He taught us to love one another;
His law is love and His gospel is peace.
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother;
And in His name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy name.

Christ is the Lord! O praise His Name forever,
His power and glory evermore proclaim.
His power and glory evermore proclaim.

O Come All Ye Faithful Lyrics

O Come All Ye Faithful

O come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant!
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold him
Born the King of Angels:

O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

God of God,
Light of Light,
Lo, he abhors not the Virgin’s womb;
Very God,
Begotten, not created:

Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of Heaven above!
Glory to God
In the highest:

Yea, Lord, we greet thee,
Born this happy morning;
Jesus, to thee be glory given!
Word of the Father,
Now in flesh appearing!

Joy to the World Lyrics

Joy to the World

Joy to the world! the Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare him room,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven, and heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the world! the Savior reigns;
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found,
Far as the curse is found,
Far as, far as, the curse is found.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders, of His love.

Jingle Bells Lyrics

Jingle Bells

Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh
Over the fields we go
Laughing all the way.
Bells on bob-tail ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight.

chorus:
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh, O
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

A day or two ago
I thought I’d take a ride
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side;
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot,
We got into a drifted bank
And there we got upsot.

chorus:
Jingle bells, jingle bells…

A day or two ago
The story I must tell
I went out on the snow
And on my back I fell;
A gent was riding by
In a one-horse open sleigh
He laughed as there I sprawling lie
But quickly drove away.

chorus:
Jingle bells, jingle bells…

Now the ground is white,
Go it while you’re young,
Take the girls tonight
And sing this sleighing song.
Just get a bob-tailed bay,
Two-forty for his speed,
Then hitch him to an open sleigh
And crack! You’ll take the lead.

chorus:
Jingle bells, jingle bells…

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing Lyrics

Hark! The Harold Angels Sing

Hark! the herald angels sing,
“Glory to the new born King,
peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled!”
Joyful, all ye nations rise,
join the triumph of the skies;
with th’ angelic host proclaim,
“Christ is born in Bethlehem!”
Hark! the herald angels sing,
“Glory to the new born King!”

Christ, by highest heaven adored;
Christ, the everlasting Lord;
late in time behold him come,
offspring of a virgin’s womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see;
hail th’ incarnate Deity,
pleased as man with man to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
“Glory to the new born King!”

Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Sun of Righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings,
risen with healing in his wings.
Mild he lays his glory by,
born that man no more may die,
born to raise the sons of earth,
born to give us second birth.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
“Glory to the new born King!”

Come, Desire of nations, come,
fix in us thy humble home;
rise, the woman’s conquering Seed,
bruise in us the serpent’s head.
Adam’s likeness, Lord, efface;
stamp thine image in its place.
Second Adam from above,
Reinstate us in thy love.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
“Glory to the new born King!”

Adam’s likeness, Lord, efface,
Stamp Thine image in its place:
Second Adam from above,
Reinstate us in Thy love.
Let us Thee, though lost, regain,
Thee, the Life, the inner man:
O, to all Thyself impart,
Formed in each believing heart.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
“Glory to the newborn King!”
