Some East Texas businesses are transitioning their trade in the winter months to stay afloat.
Companies like Express Lawn Sprinklers started expanding their services to offer Christmas lighting a few years ago.
Albert Minchew says the demand picks up a little more every year.
He tells KETK many people choose to hire a professional to hang their lights because the process can sometimes be dangerous, time consuming and stressful.
Minchew says the most popular lighting style is clear lights framing the roof, trees and bushes.
And yes, they take the lights down too.
