Photographing Christmas Lights and Your Christmas Tree

Ever since I got my DSLR camera (2 Christmas' ago), I have wanted to be able to take some good pictures of my Christmas lights and tree.  Last year at this time I was still stuck in "Auto" mode...but this past year I have really learned how to use all of the Modes, including Manual.  So I started searching for a few tutorials to get me moving in the right direction for photographing my tree.  I have even found ideas/tutorials for using a point and shoot camera for these types of photos.  This is what I found...
