Do you hang your christmas tree lights from the bottom and go up?

Or from the top and go down?

Re: !!!!QUICK!!!!

We've always done it from the top going down. That way the final plug is under the tree not way up at the top. Then, you just have to run the extension cord or whatever under the tree skirt and you don't see it. Plus, if you have "extra" lights when you are done, you can find room for them at the bottom. It would be hard to do that if you ended at the top.

Top down... so I could make sure the top plug end is tucked at the back of the tree instead of glaring out of the front. And so any extra lights can be hit at the bottom.

Bottom-up, and I plug in each strand as I go so I can see where the lights are on the tree.
