If your Christmas lights have been gathering dust in the loft all year, they might be worn or damaged. So it’s a bright idea to give them the once over before you put them up.
You want your Christmas lights to burn bright, not burn the house down! Because LEDs are cooler, they won’t overheat and catch fire like traditional lights can.
Once you’ve got your lights sorted it’s time to put them up, which is an accident waiting to happen. Here’s how you can avoid being highly strung.
We all like to outshine our neighbours when it comes to our Christmas light display. Just be careful not to overload your circuit.
As tempting as it might be to leave your lights up till next year, there comes a time when you have to take them all down again.
