Christmas Guys Fun Tip Friday #4

Ho ho ho Christmasteers!?It’s time for another Fun Tip Friday post! And this tip is not really about Christmas light installation but about Christmas light take downs. Anyone who has ever done holiday decorations for more than a year understands the epic battle that happens between you and your tangled Christmas lights. We’ve all been there, you size up the tangle and think to yourself “I can do this in 2 minutes no problem,” then 3 hours later you loose your mind throw the Christmas light strand in the air and give up. Ahhh good times, good times.
One simple tip to avoid tangled Christmas lights is when you take them down put one or 2 strands of Christmas lights in a plastic grocery bag. If you have enough plastic bags go ahead and do one Christmas light strand per bag. This will at least prevent the strands from tangling with other strands so any tangles you may get should be fairly simple and easy to untangle. This is one very easy and simple task you can do to make next years Christmas light installation much more enjoyable!
Here is a song I’m sure most of you have heard and it’s actually part of our Christmas Guys yard signs you may have seen in Albany, Clifton Park, Wynantskill, Schenectady, Latham, Rexford, Slingerlands and the rest of the Capital region. Our sign says “Why are they blinking!?” in reference to the struggles all Christmas light installers know, be it professional decorators or the everyman. The Christmas Guys can take care of the #1 and #2 pains of Christmas just give us a call.


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!
