Get ready to have your mind blown. According to the Internet, we’ve been hanging the lights on our Christmas trees TOTALLY WRONG.
Instead of wrapping them the whole way around the tree, just do the front . . . and hang them VERTICALLY.
You start at the bottom . . . go straight to the top . . . then back down to the bottom . . . and keep going until the entire front is filled.

You could also zig-zag them horizontally across the front. But people on social media claim that vertical lets the lights sit closer to the tips of the branches for “maximum sparkle.”

According to one source, that’s how they do the lights on the tree in Rockefeller Center. So it might be worth a try.
