Installing Holiday Lighting
Hiring a company to install your holiday lighting is becoming a more popular option for many homeowners, who appreciate the conveniences and safety. The business model for most of these companies is that they provide the lights, installation, maintenance, tear down, and storage. Many offer decor like wreaths and yard displays as optional add-ons. Essentially, you are leasing the product that they own and service, which can translate into less stress for you and more time to spend with family during the holidays. Yes, please!
Many landscaping companies have expanded into this business as a way to augment their income during the slower time of year, and they can book up early (like before Halloween). You will want to ask what their minimum is, their availability, if they require a multiple year contract, and of course, ensure that they have insurance.

Great Places to See Holiday Lights
If hanging a wreath on the door or putting up some inflatables is more your style, that’s a-okay because there are no shortage of neighborhood and professional holiday lighting displays in St. Louis. Candy Cane Lane in St. Louis Hills is one of the most popular neighborhood destinations for lights, where residents of Murdoch Street raise thousands of dollars for charity each year. Teddy Bear Christmas Land is tucked behind Grant’s Farm in Crestwood and raises thousands for Toys for Tots with its annual display.
