Christmas is rapidly approaching. As our Christmas holiday lighting technicians string the last strands of lights for our customers, they look forward to a bit of rest and relaxation before ringing in the new year. Like many, a favorite pastime is cozying up with loved ones to watch Christmas movies. Christmas movies are an extension of holiday traditions for many. They reflect current trends and influence viewers. So we thought it would be fun to look at how exterior Christmas lighting has played a part in movies and media.
Did your childhood include exterior holiday lighting?
As kids, my friend and I loved looking at houses decorated with holiday lights. My friend’s house, however, looked more like the Grinch lived there. Not a cheerful light in sight and a father that wouldn’t budge. I was reminded of my friend’s lack of holiday lighting recently at a social gathering when someone brought up the topic of childhood experiences with Christmas decorations. It turns out to be a pretty common experience. Here are some reasons given by parents (and spouses) for not putting up lights during the holiday season.
Is your exterior ready for the holidays?
The Omaha metro area experienced snow, twice already this season! Luckily, neither incident from the end of October stuck around for long. However, it’s a reminder that winter will soon be here to stay (for a bit at least), so it is time to prep for the holidays and get your exterior holiday lights hung.

We had a very successful holiday lighting season this year for a couple reasons. We have the BEST clients around town that allow us to create awesome holiday displays for them and everyone in their neighborhood to enjoy. Our installation team really put in a lot of effort and long hours to make sure everyone was taken care of on our list. We were also fortunate to add many new clients to our existing list of holiday lighting customers and add them to the Paradise Lawns family. Although we didn’t hit our goal of new holiday lighting clients, we came very close and are very happy with those who allowed us to light up their houses this year! It was a very fast and fun season for everyone involved, and the install team is ready for a little down time to relax with their own families…until Takedown time! read more →
Will LED or Incandescent bulbs win this battle of holiday lighting?
When it comes to holiday lighting, you generally have two choices: LED (Light-Emitting Diode) bulbs and incandescent bulbs. Incandescent lights are the traditional electric light bulbs. They have wire filament that is heated to a high temperature, which then glows. LED lights, however, use a semiconductor to convert electricity into light—there is no heating to high temperatures with LED. Incandescent lights are still what most people think of when they think of holiday lighting, but LED is quickly gaining in popularity—and for good reason! read more →
