It is not long now until Christmas is here and many people are already dying to get their decorations put up. Most people wait until December to put their decs up but for some the middle of November is late enough.

It is not just the inside of our houses that we like to decorate for the festive period. More and more people are investing in lights for the outside of the house too. With the awful couple of years that many of us have had due to the pandemic, people are wanting to make the most of the special time we get to spend with our friends and family. Creating a winter wonderland in your garden is the perfect way to bring some festive cheer not only to your home but to the rest of the street.

Christmas decorations and lights can be expensive so it is worth keeping an eye out for items in the sale. These can often be picked up in the January sales.

You need to ensure that any lights that you have for the inside or outside of your home are safe and are installed correctly. Only ever use proper outdoor sockets for pluggin in your lights on the outside of your property.
