Assuming you aren't one of the people who took advantage of this past Saturday's weather in the Hudson Valley. And like me you still have to hang your outdoor Christmas lights. Which day will be the best this coming weekend? It would be wonderful if we could get another day similar to Saturday but unfortunately Mother Nature is saying, No. So let's break it down from best to worst other wise those exterior lights might not get up at all.

Thanksgiving day looks like it might work for hanging outdoor lights but lets face it we will all probably to busy eating, snacking and watching parades and football to actually get out and start a project involving Christmas lights. So that leaves Friday which actually looks like the better of the two days weather wise. Sunny and 41 makes for good outdoor lighting fun. Don't plan to wait past Friday though because it looks like the Hudson Valley may be looking at measurable snow by Sunday.
