We have a clear prelit tree. Then we take a strand of color lights, and start at the top. We run them up and down as we go around. It is best to have 2 people for this. Then if we want more lights, we run a set starting at the top going around until we get to the bottom.

At my house, we always start wrapping the lights from the top down. We wrap all the branches individually, and work the same level around all of the branches, before moving down to the next level.

Lights add so much to a Christmas tree. And putting them on can be a lot of fun. But when it comes to taking them off after the holiday, now that's another story altogether!

When Christmas rolls around and it's time to get our tree ready to put up, I always share this tip with friends. Surprising how many folks have never thought of this idea, yet it's so simple.

When putting up Christmas lights inside or out I save myself a lot of grief by doing the following things. First, stock up on bulbs and fuses in advance to save making an extra trip out to buy them. Untangle each string. Plug one at a time in and replace bulbs.

When using lights to decorate a Christmas tree: Instead of wrapping lights around the tree, loop the lights up and down the tree as you go around.
