    Nothing within arms reach of the fence or it gets stolen.
    This is South Africa for you :-\ .
    This is also why I build on a stage so that it is visible from outside the fence.

    Last year took a long time as it was the first time and I worked with ladders.

    This year I build a scaffolding structure which took about 2 to 3 hours and the actual tree and strings went up in another 2 or 3 hours.

    Never too old to learn :D

    Haha, yeah that's why I asked - boss is South African and has laughed that a Christmas lights display wouldn't last very long over there, unless you planned accordingly!
