Twinkling Lights Up

No more will the month of December be spent disentangling Christmas lights. By looping the wires around coat hangers they will stay knot-free all year round until their unveiling on the tree. You can also hang them up so that they don't get bashed around and are easy to find when you do finally use them; happy decorating!
