    I have been thinking about starting a christmas light business to do durring the off season. I was wondering what liabilities you have run into. What are some concerns I should look at.

    I am in the same boat as bene...my irrigation supplier carries holiday lighting and i got into with one connection at a bank last year. The only risk i found was the electrical fire risk. I still bought the lights and installed them and i made around $100 and i own the lights. It turned out to be a pretty good deal for me. I would like to get more into it this year.

    Wouldn't you need general liability in case you fall off the roof and land on a car or whatever, causing property damage? And the fire issue mentioned. Or the neighbor gets blinded by the lighting display and crashes? Hard to speculate what 'could' happen.
