That's OK if you didn't get a chance to hang up the Christmas lights or decorate outdoors last weekend. There's always this weekend. To get you pumped up and ready to hit the roof and under the eaves, we are giving you a crash course and on the basics in hanging Christmas lights, how to wrap light strands around trunks and branches of trees in your yard, why this year may be the year to go all-LED, along with some lighting safety tips. If you want to get fancy, check out some of the best Christmas inflatables of the year, along with those retro plastic blow mold holiday figures.
Need ideas? Take a peek at the fabulous creations some of your fellow lighters have come up with, from California to Brooklyn. We've done some digging around to find some of the best neighborhoods and houses for holiday lights and decorations. Who knows -- maybe one of these fabulous megawatt displays is in a neighborhood near you.
