To wait or not - noob LN question

Hi all,

Noob loving the community, trying to learn with my kids about better ways we can run the world, and think that the way we can take back control of how finance works is a great opportunity for us all.

Any way my question, we are waiting for our node to download and sync, I had a few spare BTC so have transferred it to my Umbrel wallet, is there any harm in opening a channel already or should I wait until everything is fully synchronized?
