  • Christmas Light Power Usage & Extension Cords

    Posted on March 30 2018


    Before buying your Christmas lights you will need to have the right extension cords, timers and power calculations.  Given these we will be able to calculate the total amount of power you can use which may limit the total amount of Christmas Lights you can buy.  

    There are a few things to note about safety before you get started with your decorating. Outdoor cords should be marked with labels that read either UL or ETL. These labels let consumers like me, and you know that the cord has been tested by a group with an independent laboratory, known as Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or the OSHA. The packaging that the cord comes in should also state whether the cord is for indoor or outdoor use. Since we are decorating outdoors, we need an outdoor cord, since these cords are weatherproof and can be used in harsh conditions like ice and snow. Not only are they water proof but the outdoor extension cords are generally thicker due to the insulation and sheathing that is used which makes them more sturdy and able to carry current over longer distances.  Another thing to get for your decorating is automatic timers. These work by turning off your lights during the night and when you aren’t at home.

    Posted on September 10 2015


    The start of the Christmas Tree tradition is usually credited to Germany, in about the 16th century. It is believed that the Martin Luther, father of the Protestant Reformation, first added lights in the form of candles to his holiday tree. He had remembered seeing the stars twinkling among the evergreen trees on a walk one evening, and wished to share the scene with his family by illuminating Christmas trees with candles.

    Christmas Trees in America

    Though it would seem a common thing today, in the 19th century, Christmas Trees were an oddity. German settlers in Pennsylvania had the first recorded displayed Christmas tree in about 1830. Though these settlements had had trees for at least one hundred years prior, most Americans still saw them as pagan symbols.

Unfortunately, with an elaborate Christmas display comes a difficult installation and removal process, and in January of 2015, Mr. Cooper fell off of his roof while removing his display, and was in a coma for some time.  All of this could have been avoided by using a professional to install and remove his Christmas display.

    Many people do not enjoy going up on ladders to hang lights, and that’s great but please be safe if you are going to do it. For most people, the idea of untangling and hanging multiple strands of lighting is not at all appealing.
