Happy Holidays from Village Green


This holiday season gives us so many reasons to give thanks and count our blessings.
I want to thank you, our fantastic customers, for your continued support. We would not be where we are today without your commitment and loyalty these past 33 years.  In addition I want to say a special thanks to all of our staff for their hard work and loyalty during this past year.
I wish you all a wonderful Holiday Season and a prosperous New Year.  
We will be closed (except for emergency Christmas light calls) late through January 2nd so that we may enjoy the holidays with family!  
As 2014 approaches, our 34th year in business, we look forward to a new year with renewed energy and great optimism. We renew our commitment to our extraordinary customers and look forward to providing exceptional service. 

All the best, 
Ken Hyatt, Founder and President

Christmas Light After Winter Storm Cleon

Holiday-lights-on-iceOver the past few days we have received a large number of calls from customers who are having trouble with their Christmas lights.  Village Green is in the Christmas light business at this time of the year, so our customers (both business and commercial) are calling to tell us that large sections of their lights are not working.  The culprit is Cleon (the recent winter storm that dumped all the ice in our area.)  The issue is that Christmas lights have slight nicks or weak spots that allow moisture to seep into them.  Your roof lights will usually be ok, but on trees and shrubs water from the melting ice will wick in from the limbs and can trip the GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter.)  This is also true of any Christmas lights on the ground (like staked lights.)  In fact, any long soaking rain can seep into the wire and trip the GFI outlet.  Keep in mind that GFIs can be located in strange places.  It’s not unusual for a bathroom outlet to trip and turn off the holiday lights plugged in on the front porch.  If you are having issues look for GFIs on all outlets near water (think kitchens or bathroom and out in the garage.) Some newer homes will have the GFI built into the breaker switch in the breaker panel.  Once you find the GFI, press the button until it clicks and your holiday lights are once again shining brightly.  If that doesn’t resolve the problem, we tell our customers to wait a few hours (to allow the lights to dry out) and try the GFI again.

Dallas Baptist University Christmas Light Installation

It’s time for installing lights at Dallas Baptist University. The regular crew installs lights on trees but it’s become a tradition that the Hyatt family installs lights on the roofs. Shelby spent last Sunday helping her Dad.
