Holiday Shopping? Check? Cleaning for House Guests? Check. Cookies baked? Check. Tree Decorated? Check. Lights hung? Uhhhhh.

This is the one item that always seems to slip from the holiday to-do list. Why is that? Braving the cold and/or the fear of heights are just a couple of reasons why so many houses lack that holiday sparkle during the last days of the year.

It’s no surprise that the professional lighting industry is exploding. With so much going on during the busiest time of the year, the appeal of Holiday Lighting DIY has lost its luster. The benefits of paying someone to handle it seem to far outweigh the cost:

A Design Plan:

Pros consider your house style and size and can use past experience and expertise to come up with a design that will be customize for your house. Not only will they hang lights, they can also hang garland, wreaths and more.

The Shopping:

How many lights? Which ones are the best to use? Where did I leave my wallet? These are just a couple of things to consider when you are shopping for lighting. Professional companies take precise measurements of your house, determine the exact amount of lights needed and also make sure they are using safe, laboratory tested and approved lighting.


Are you climbing up into the attic or wading through the cobwebs in your basement every season? Yuck. Professional lighting companies store all of your lights and decorations for you, as easy as that.

Missing Bulbs:

You hung all of the lights and two days later you see four lights are out. It’s enough to drive a person crazy…off to the garage to drag the ladder out again. If you go with a professional, they will handle all of the maintenance for you…that means the only heavy lifting you will have to do is to lift that cup of cocoa to your lips as you relax by the fire. Ahhh…

As the holidays approach, put a “Contact Modern Candlelight” on the checklist, your house will sparkle and your holidays will involve more “oohs and aahs” and less “uh ohs” and “arghs”.
