    Start with using "holiday lights" instead of "Christmas".- not just for the religious aspect of it but for Thanksgiving, and New Years too. Even when you take them down or invoice them remind them you can do simple Halloween lighting next year 04. That's becoming more popular too.

    Try to schedule up service before T-day so all your early customers have them ready to turn-on day after T-day if they want. Even offer disc for put-ups before T-day (temperatures for you and time schedules too) Or more appropriate bid higher rates later. As in start at your regular profitable rate and bump up a couple bucks each week. Of course many won't even call until Dec 15th. :p Supply and Demand!
