How to Hang Outdoor Christmas Lights (Cont. 1)

Electric Christmas Lights Shine Bright and Illuminate the Night

How to Hang Outdoor Christmas LightsThe story of the first electrically lit Christmas tree says Edward H. Johnson, an associate of Thomas Edison, had electric Christmas lights made especially for himself.  The first known electric Christmas tree, as pictured here, was reportedly displayed in Johnson’s New York home in December, 1882.  Electric Christmas lights are still hung in this manner, indoors and outdoors, more than a century later!  Clearly, people love the luminescent luxury of decorating for the holidays using electric Christmas lights.  One of the easiest ways to hang electric Christmas lights is to start from the bottom and move upwards in a ribbon candy pattern, an “S” curve, that travels back and forth around one-third of the tree at a time.  Electric Christmas lights can also be used to outline a building or landscaping.  Hanging Christmas lights on a building is best done using lighting clips.  Small and transparent plastic clips are good for attaching lights to gutters or roofs and are discrete enough to allow them to be hung year-round and reused in future years.

Battery-Operated Christmas Lights Are Safe and Easy to Use

Solar-Powered Christmas Lights Glow with Radiant Energy
