It's almost guaranteed that you've been putting Christmas lights on your tree the wrong way. Nearly 100% of American wrap a tree with lights in a spiral configuration. Well, there is a much better way. And your Christmas tree will not only look better but stringing the lights will be easier and more efficient.

This year, Instead of wrapping the lights around your tree in a horizontal spiral, zig-zag them vertically up and down. Your Christmas tree lights will look incredible and you can use fewer lights by not lighting up the back of the tree. Plus, burned bulbs will be simpler to change.

These TikTok videos demonstrate the pros of using the zig-zag vertical Christmas lights method.
