Wiring Pi 3 to 8 Module relay for Christmas lights.

Is there a schematic that will show which pins to use on the pi to the relay.

I really doubt that the PI will be able to directly drive a relay, never mind eight of them.  There are boards available for the PI that contain relays that the PI can drive with its GPIO pins.  If you are intending to use these for Christmas lights, you would be better off looking into SSR's or DMX AC light controllers.
