The latest rage for the holidays seems to be the large Christmas décor that you can find in any department or garden store. They range from Santa and his reindeer, to artistic scenes done up with wires and lights. The main benefit to be gained from using these is their ease of use, and installation.
When installing large Christmas décor pieces, you must plan it wisely. Some may be operated by batteries, but there are those who require a nearby outlet and an extension cord. You should also take into account the proximity to the street, because large displays will attract attention, and you do not want to annoy the neighbors.
Hanging them from gutters will require hooks, and be sure to buy plastic hooks for lightweight, and metal for heavier displays. They can also be placed on roofs, just be careful of their weight, anchors, and your own safety.
