The Burning Question: Do you put the lights or decorations on the Christmas tree first?

Let us distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel.

It’s Tuesday, it’s freezing cold, and there’s still too many days to go until the weekend.

So do like we do here in HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: With sixteen days to go, a lot of Christmas trees are up and looking good. But there’s a sneaky dilemma when it comes to decorating them.

Do you put the lights on first and then decorate around them? Or do you put up the decorations and then niftily work the lights around them? Is one way better than the other? Or is this just overthinking it?

So what do you do?
