Hi Auclaire!

Are you putting your Christmas decorations up today?  Me too.  The
Dickens Village is nearly done, all the wall hangings are up, but
we're saving the tree until the husband gets home from work, because
he has very specific ideas about the lights.

He likes to wrap them around the branches - it lets him use about
twice as many lights at the traditional "run in circles around the
tree" method, the effect when the tree is lit is just breathtaking,
*and* there are no ugly wires to look at when you're done!

It takes quite a lot of time to do this properly, but the end result
is utterly gorgeous.

Here are a few pages with instructions for wrapping your branches:

How to  light your tree the professional way. (Scroll to The American Way)

Christmas Tree Decorating (Scroll to How Many Lights Do I Need?)

Trimming The Tree (this one has pictures)

Christmas Tree Lighting Made Easier (Scroll to Lighting an Artificial Tree)

I hope you find these helpful!  If I can be of further assistance,
please just ask for clarification.  I'll be happy to help!

Thank you SO much, Missy. It's just what I was looking for and short
of sending your husband over to do it for me (my husband doesn't do
lights or ornaments) I can't imagine what else I could need. Thanks
for taking time from your own decorating.
