Do outdoor Christmas light plugs need to be covered?

If your outdoor plug isn’t protected by a roof or other means, it needs to be covered with a particular cover called an “in-use” cover. As the name indicates, these covers will keep the receptacle and the plug in it dry, even if it rains.

When should outdoor Christmas lights be turned on?

Thanksgiving weekend has long been considered the unofficial start of the Christmas decorating season. Many people wait until December 1st to put up their decorations. However, in recent years, we’ve seen an increasing number of people deviate from convention and prefer to light up a little sooner.
