Does that sound like you? In that case, you will enjoy these tips and tricks to make sure everything goes according to plan.

Be Careful!

Oftentimes, in order for your Christmas lights to look good, you need to have access to some awkward places. When doing this, make sure you use a good ladder and, if you can, let the bottom of the ladder hold on to you as you go up. 

Other precautions you should take include using insulated stands instead of tips or nails to secure your lights, turning off all lights at night,  and making sure that you don’t put lights on any trees that are in contact with power lines.

 Keep your extension cords under control

Before choosing an extension cord, make sure it is designed for the expected time. For Calgary, it means almost everything! The location where you lay the cable is also important because you don't want to create a hazard by moving it freely along the way. Try to choose areas with little traffic and if they pass through a busy area make sure they are taped.
