During the reign of Queen Victoria, the custom of lighting Christmas trees spread to the UK and through emigration to America and Australia. Prior to the availability of electrical power, the trees were decorated with miniature two-candela carbon-filament lamps.
To hang the lights, you’ll need clear hooks that blend in with your ceiling’s design or perimeter. Start with a hook that’s large enough to support the cord’s diameter and work your way around the room. When the strands are in place, you can choose whether to pull them tight or let them hang loosely for a more relaxed look.
