Hanging Christmas lights can be challenging and time-consuming, but it's definitely worth the effort! To hang Christmas lights successfully, youll need a tape measure and gutter hooks or decorating clips to hang string or rope lights. If youre hanging mains-operated exterior lights, youll need a waterproof extension lead. Use a tape measure to make sure that the extension lead is long enough. Make sure to use a ladder if youre hanging lights along a high wall or window. Test your lights before you begin to hang them. We recommend attaching decorating clips or gutter hooks at regular intervals, normally every 30 - 50cm. For heavier lights, such as icicles or large bulb lights, place clips and hooks at shorter intervals. Make sure that there is a clip or hook in place to support the end of your string of lights. How many lights do I need for my Christmas tree? There is much dispute over the optimum number of lights for a Christmas tree, but we recommend hanging 100 bulbs per 2ft of Christmas tree. This corresponds to around 5 metres of lights. For a six-foot tree, youll need around 15 metres of lights. If youre going for a minimalist look, we recommend hanging fewer lights or strings with smaller bulbs. For a busier look, try mixing and matching light styles. Who invented Christmas lights? Light has long been associated with Christmas. Prior to the invention of light bulbs in 1880, many families use candles as decorations on Christmas trees and in windows. In 1882 Edward Johnson, a friend of Thomas Edisons, hung a string of brightly coloured bulbs around a Christmas tree. Several decades later, Christmas lighting became less expensive and more prevalent.
