With some unusually warm weather many people spent the day outside putting up Christmas decorations.
But what if you don't have the time to deck the halls this year?
For the Satula Family every year they enjoy the hands on tradition of decorating the house.
“We just enjoy it. I think we grew up with that kind of idea,” says Chet Sutula of Granger.
But not everybody can handle the task themselves.
“The lights never work so we always have to go buy new… so that's a major problem, we used to fix them but that took hours,” says Sarah Paul.
The Paul family gets half their holiday help from Ginger Valley, “especially with the high things, with the wreaths and things like that.”
For the really, really high wreathes some families are calling in the professionals for the whole project.
“This is my second season doing the outdoor lighting and I'm doing more this year than I was last year,” says Mike Bailey, Illumiscape Outdoor Lighting President.
Bailey believes more and more people don't want the stress of holiday lighting.
“They call me I consult and after that they don't have to worry about anything,” he says.
He also says standing on a ladder in the cold for some isn't safe… or fun.
“The biggest benefit is in the cold of January the folks don't have to go outside I come back and store it for them until the following season,” says Bailey.
