Easy Upgrades for Your Holiday Outdoor Lighting

The holiday season is upon us! If you’re like us, you want your home to have as much holiday spirit on the outside as it does on the inside. But decorating your home’s exterior is usually one of the more challenging holiday tasks. It traditionally requires spending hours outside in the cold, balancing at the very top of a ladder, only to discover that the final strand simply won’t light (no matter how many times you change the tiny bulbs).
