For those of you who dread the idea of hanging holiday lights in the trees. I have good news for you. There's a company out there called Bliss Lighting (http://www.blisslights.com/) that offers an exterior rated fixture that uses a laser to project thousands of pinpoints of green light way up into the tree branches. And I mean way up... Easily 50, 60, 70 feet up into the canopy of foliage. It offers instant gratification without the hassle of climbing up ladders and stringing lights through the trees. Ans as much as I dislike hanging lights, what I like even less is the idea of taking them down after the holidays are over. For residential size projects, they offer the "Spright". They also have other versions for commercial settings, as well as other interesting projection devices for interior spaces. Using this product, for me, helps relieve a little of the stress around the holiday season.
