Is there a song for Christmas lights? Oh HECK YEAH
Is there a song for Christmas lights? Oh heck yeah – and it’s synced up to TSO music! This is magical:
Are you planning to put up Christmas lights over the weekend? According to this, a lot of us will . .
4,000 people were asked when they usually do it, and when people SHOULD start decorating. The first weekend of December was a popular answer for both.
23% said they normally put them up in the first week of December. And most people agree it’s appropriate once December hits. Only 15% think it’s still too early for decorations.
Of those people, 4% think you should wait until next week . . . 8% said the week before Christmas . . . and 3% don’t think lights should go up until Christmas Day.
Only around 1% put them up in September, and 5% said October. The most popular month for it is November, with 44% of the vote. But a lot of those people said LATE November, or right after Thanksgiving.
4% said they leave at least some holiday decorations up year-round.
And here’s one more Christmas tip…involving the placement of the lights on your tree (and your WiFi)
If you just decorated your place for the holidays and your internet suddenly sucks, this is why . . .
Putting anything in front of your router can cause issues, especially big things like a Christmas tree.
Something that big can block the signal and wreck your internet speed. So if your tree is blocking your line of sight to your router, move the router or the tree.
Lights and tinsel can make it even worse. When the radio waves your router pumps out hit tinsel, they bounce off and scatter, which can slow your WiFi down. The same can happen with ornaments too.
Here’s one more tip: Plugging your lights and router into the same outlet also isn’t a great idea, according to experts. Especially if the lights twinkle or flash.
Having them in the same outlet raises the chances of your connection dropping out.
