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 #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.
