Four Christmas Décor Tips For Rental Homes

Are you planning on decorating your rental home for the holidays? If so, you’ve come to the right place!

Holiday decorating is something that most people look forward to, but with the decorations also can come holes in the walls that will need to be filled in later.

This is why in this article; we’re going to share with you several tips that you can use to decorate your rental home without leaving an ‘impact’ on the property.

Holiday Decorating Tip #1 – Use Command Hooks Whenever Possible

Command Hooks are a decorator’s ‘best friend’ during the holidays because they don’t leave holes in walls as thumbtacks do.

Since many Command Hooks can hold up to 10 pounds, you can use them for hanging things like lights, stockings, and ornaments.

Once the holidays have passed, and you remove your holiday decorations, all you have to do is peel the Command Hook strips off the walls of your rental property and throw the used strips away.

Holiday Decorating Tip #2 – Be Wary Of Real Trees

You may enjoy the smell of pine from your Christmas Tree during the holidays but the reality is that pine needles can potentially be a fire hazard (if they dry out) and their needles are often hard to clean up, especially from carpeting.

For best results, consider investing in an artificial Christmas tree. They are very affordable, easy to clean up, and can be used every year.

Holiday Decorating Tip #3 – Hang Christmas Lights Inside Windows

Although everyone wants to hang their holiday lights outside their rental property, the reality is that most rental homes don’t have any outside electrical outlets to plug lights in.

If you’re living in an apartment complex, or a multifamily property that’s part of an HOA, you may not be allowed to hang lights outside at all.

For best results, hang your Christmas lights inside your windows using Command Hooks.

This will help them to still be seen when you approach the exterior of your rental home and you won’t have to find a way to use a long extension cord outside your rental home to provide power to those lights.

Also, when decorating the exterior of your rental home, be conscious of your neighbors and avoid too many decorations that might shine light into their bedrooms, block their view, or be an annoyance.

Holiday Decorating Tip #4 – Avoid Fire Hazards

Fires often occur during the holidays because people sometimes do things that are unsafe like placing a Christmas tree near a heat source, or pinching electrical cords while trying to provide power to lights.

To avoid fire hazards during the holidays, it’s best to review your decorating work before you turn those lights on, because a fire can break out in minutes and ruin your Christmas.

Origin Of Christmas

Christmas is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, observed primarily on December 25 as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world. A feast central to the Christian liturgical year, it is preceded by the season of Advent or the Nativity Fast and initiates the season of Christmastide, which historically in the West lasts twelve days and culminates on Twelfth Night; in some traditions, Christmastide includes an octave. Christmas Day is a public holiday in many of the world’s nations, is celebrated religiously by a majority of Christians, as well as culturally by many non-Christians, and forms an integral part of the holiday season centered around it.

The traditional Christmas narrative, the Nativity of Jesus, delineated in the New Testament says that Jesus was born in Bethlehem, in accordance with messianic prophecies. When Joseph and Mary arrived in the city, the inn had no room and so they were offered a stable where the Christ Child was soon born, with angels proclaiming this news to shepherds who then further disseminated the information.

Although the month and date of Jesus’ birth are unknown, the church in the early fourth century fixed the date as December 25. This corresponds to the date of the winter solstice on the Roman calendar. Most Christians celebrate on December 25 in the Gregorian calendar, which has been adopted almost universally in the civil calendars used in countries throughout the world. However, part of the Eastern Christian Churches celebrates Christmas on December 25 of the older Julian calendar, which currently corresponds to January 7 in the Gregorian calendar. For Christians, believing that God came into the world in the form of man to atone for the sins of humanity, rather than knowing Jesus’ exact birth date, is considered to be the primary purpose in celebrating Christmas.

About Christmas

Christmas is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, observed most commonly on December 25  as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world.

feast central to the Christian liturgical year, it is preceded by the season of Advent or the Nativity Fast and initiates the season of Christmastide, which historically in the West lasts twelve days and culminates on Twelfth Night; in some traditions, Christmastide includes an Octave. Christmas Day is a public holiday in many of the world’s nations, is celebrated religiously by a majority of Christians, as well as culturally by many non-Christians, and forms an integral part of the holiday season. In several countries, celebrating Christmas Eve has the main focus rather than Christmas Day.

Although the month and date of Jesus’ birth are unknown, by the early-to-mid fourth century the Western Christian Church had placed Christmas on December 25, a date that was later adopted in the East. Today, most Christians celebrate on December 25 in the Gregorian calendar, which has been adopted almost universally in the civil calendars used in countries throughout the world. However, some Eastern Christian Churches celebrate Christmas on December 25 of the older Julian calendar, which currently corresponds to January 7 in the Gregorian calendar, the day after the Western Christian Church celebrates the Epiphany. This is not a disagreement over the date of Christmas as such, but rather a preference of which calendar should be used to determine the day that is December 25.

Although it is not known why December 25 became a date of celebration, there are several factors that may have influenced the choice. December 25 was the date the Romans marked as the winter solstice, the shortest and darkest day of the year, and the first day in which the days would begin to elongate and the Sun would have a longer presence in the sky; Jesus was identified with the Sun based on an Old Testament verse. December 25 is exactly nine months following the Crucifixion of Jesus, which, around the 3rd century, became associated with his conception based on understandings at the time of the way salvation is bound up in birth and death; some theories then had the date of the Crucifixion as his birthday, others took the date nine months later: Christmas day. Also, Ancient Romans had a series of pagan festivals near the end of the year, and Christmas may have been scheduled at this time to appropriate, or compete with, one or more of these festivals. Some scholars disagree with this latter interpretation and state that the Roman Emperor Aurelian placed a pagan celebration on December 25 in order to compete with the growing rate of the Christian Church, which had already been celebrating Christmas on that date.
