  You know the season is here when you start to see Christmas light installations around town, especially at the local shopping centers. Like many of you I love the look of huge trees, lit from their base to the end of their branch tips. This type of Christmas light installation takes a ton of lights and a lot labor.

  • August 26, 2011

By Maria Bargellini, holiday lighting designer for DFW Christmas Lights Icicle drop lights are fairly new and have been used mostly for large commercial holiday lighting displays - until now.

Holiday Lighting maintenance: Bulb Replacement

  • October 17, 2010

Unfortunately Holiday Lighting comes with a bit of maintenance. There's bulbs, fuses and sometimes even wires to be replaced.
