Remember the classic yuletide movie, “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” where Clark Griswold has visions for a magnificent holiday light display, but things don’t work out quite as he plans?
First, he untangles the lights and commences hanging but quickly falls off the ladder. After brushing himself off, he resumes putting up lights only to staple himself to the roof. Finally, when he plugs in the lights after seemingly every inch of house is covered in strands, they don’t work because the outlet is overloaded.
Even though this goofball, slapstick scene is specifically staged for lots of laughs, the chaos isn’t too far off the mark when people try to hang their own Christmas holiday lighting and displays, particularly on a grand, well-designed scale.
Sure, it’s the most wonderful time of the year, unless you’re the one doing the untangling, ladder climbing, light stringing and connecting all of the many extension cords.
Giving yourself the gift of professional holiday lighting might be just what you need to deck the halls with all of the boughs of holly and none of the stress or hassle.
