Nothing says friendship like someone asking you to help them move house.

It can cost nominally more than hanging them yourself, but then you don’t have to spend hours standing on a ladder in the freezing cold, either. Whichever way you choose to go, we make it easier than ever to install Christmas lights with our professional pricing and DIY installation guide, after the jump.
