The truth is putting up holiday decorations is a chore that most people dread. What makes it even worse is when a bulb goes out, or the lawn ornament gets a small hole. What was a dreaded chore then becomes a nightmare. And of course, this all takes place during the coldest part of the year, as you stand outside bundled up trying to find the one bulb in the 2,000 strands of lights that needs to be replaced.

However, it doesn't have to be that difficult. Now, you can hire a qualified company to not only set up and take down your decorations, but design the layout and maintain the decorations throughout the season.

The Cons

You are probably thinking, "Who hires people to design and maintain their holiday decorations?" In this part of the country where the winters start in October and end in May, it is more common than you may realize. Of course, the objections exist. While "cons" may be a strong word, the objections would include things like cost, taking away from family time, or even coming across as "those neighbors."

  • Cost. It is actually less costly than one would think. Compare the cost of your time, your aggravation, and the possible missed days of work due to that HORRIBLE cold and flu you received, and it may actually be a cost savings.
  • Loss of Family Time. Family time can be spent in many ways that do not include screaming, cursing, and throwing objects from the roof in anger. Instead, drink some hot chocolate and watch Home Alone for the millionth time.
  • Being "that neighbor." As long as your house is beautiful and not an eyesore that can be seen from space, you will not be "that neighbor." You may actually be his neighbor that is fourth in line for the professional. 

The Pros

There are many pros to hiring a company to decorate your home for the holidays. Aside from the above-mentioned issues, some of the pros can include ensuring your home looks beautiful and inviting, maintaining the beauty throughout the season without the mess, and extra storage space for things that really need to be saved, instead of holiday lights. However, the most important pro is the ease of the process. Instead of hating the beginning of the season, you and your family can enjoy all the holidays have to offer without any of the annoying chores.

Should you choose to make the wise decision and hire a professional, make sure, you are getting a true professional. Ask to see an insurance certificate. Make sure the installers are employees and not sub-contractors.  Make sure they are environmentally friendly by using energy saving LED lights. Finally, ask to see their work.  A good, reliable company, will have a book of work to show the quality of their services.
