How many of you buy to many Christmas lights, don't follow directions when hanging them, or hang them using a unstrudy ladder? Believe it or not there are alot of you out there.
There is a wrong way and a right way. The first step is to view your home as if you we're the passerby, and get some good vantage points. Vision where to place your lights as if you are the passerby viewing your decorations. View not only the house, but the porch and yard as well. Vision is the key here. You can even make a rough sketch before you start, after all you don't want a news report with your house, as the worse decorated do you. And you surely don't want to have your house look like a Griswold re-do.
