Along with gift-giving, tree decorating, and caroling, childhood holiday memories usually include Christmas light displays. Riding around with the folks looking at what the neighbors put up complete with music, synchronized flashing lights, and animation brought joy to even the most jaded child – the one doubting Santa that year. While the kids were awe-struck with electronic visual overload, Mom and Dad were murmuring gratitude for not having to pay that electric bill and grappling with the traffic jams surrounding their favorites. To top it off, the ride home was usually filled with the 20 questions per kid, such as “why can’t we do that? How come you don’t have the lights twinkling with music, can’t we have more colors this year and a 20 ft. Santa too, Dad?’ And quite often by the time you got home, the high point ended up being that the car’s heating system was still working.
Nevertheless, most of us find ourselves tangled up in webs of light strands and throwing away countless hours to find that one bulb that went out! Just to throw them all out and make numerous trips to the store for more.
This year, you can relax knowing you can let someone else install romantic, holiday-worthy lighting around your home’s yards and outdoor living spaces that you can enjoy year round. With an integrated, outdoor lighting system installed to create warm cozy moods while illuminating your yard’s best features, you can have that holiday glow all night, every night of the year by simply flipping the switch. No wires, no strands, no frantic searches for burned out bulbs.
Hiring a professional outdoor lighting designer for your outdoor living spaces is more affordable than you might think to install and to maintain. Look for energy efficient and long lasting systems like LED lights which take far less energy than traditional lights. They are powerful enough to light up your walkways, patios, conversation areas, dining areas, and that 20-foot blow up Santa with the sleigh each December.
So enjoy your tangled webs of light strands and nightly comparisons to the neighbors while you can, because with a little research and a great system you can have hassle free, outdoor lights that chase away the Bah Humbugs for at least 11 months of the year!
