Default Added some dedicated circuits for Christmas lights

I have more lights this year than I have before so I decided I better get in to the breaker box and make some changes. Still have a lot of open outlets for expansion.

Yeah, I see that now. I'll replace the new ones with old so they are all the same. Good catch.

Wow, fancy coated wires too. I take old coat hangers and cut them to length and wire those up from the breaker to the outlets.

No engine stand in the pic makes it non-Aero approved.

With a sophisticated setup like that, you may want to consider a security system:

Well, truth be told, I had some Christmas lights go out and had to splice the string. The stand is about 25 feet up...but it's not over the entrance to the house so risk is minimal.
