Inspiring Christmas - Light Up The Tree

After the tree was brought home, set up and left to thaw for a while it was time to sort out the strings of Christmas lights.

Straighten Out The Lights!

Has anyone ever wondered why lights that were rolled and put away so carefully the year before were a tangled mess when they came back out of the box?

The lights had to be so carefully unraveled and checked.

And somehow there were always other items in the box other than the strings of lights.

But in the end it always came out right. Perfect strings of dazzling Christmas lights.

How DO the lights get tangled when they were put away straight the year before? I'll be back to see how you trim the tree. :)

It's the worst part of Christmas tree decorating. If I had a fake one, I would leave the lights one.
