Protecting My Christmas Tree Cord

We bought a new Christmas tree this year. And I did something I’ve never done before: I bought a pre-lit tree. I was so terrified of plugging it in and the lights just NOT turning on. We ended up braving a pre-lit tree mostly because I wanted a tall tree for my tall ceiling, but didn’t […]
