Good day to you Dear Readers! It’s been a while, but I haven’t forgotten about you. As a little Holiday gift, the good ol’ Route 60 and I are going to give you the 12 Days of Christmas Tips.

Nelly's Christmas Tips

Day one is all about that Christmas disaster almost everyone has faced. You’ve spent hours lovingly decorating your tree, and it looks perfect! A few days later, you turn it on and holy holly berries…half the dang lights are out. Now you have a couple of options…celebrate like it’s 1712 and leave the lights off for the rest of the year. We all love holidays with a vintage feel, right? Or, you can spend another whole day that you would normally be scrambling around town looking for last minute gifts REDECORATING the entire tree. But wait! Nelly has recently discovered a brand new kind of magic. It’s probably science, but I don’t know how it works, so we’re just going to call it magic. It’s called a LightKeeper Pro Light Set Repair Tool, and I know for a fact that Walgreens sells them, and so does Amazon.com. (You can still order and get one in time to have a blazing bright tree Christmas morning.) These things will tell you what bulbs are out, and if you have sections that aren’t working, you can click this trigger thing and it will magically bring those dead spots back to life. You need this gadget, folks. And if you have someone on your Christmas list who really likes to do  true Griswald style decorating, this would make a great gift. Until tomorrow….stay sane, and happy holidays!
