There's nothing like the holidays to bring family and friends together. But the holidays also bring opportunities for incidents to occur around the home. Here are (come on, sing along...) 12 things at Christmas to celebrate safelyyyyy... well, we tried.
1. Christmas Trees
Nothing could be more dangerous than dried twigs and branches in your living room. Unless it's dried twigs and branches with lots of paper around it, within "striking distance" of a warm crackling fire and hot light bulbs. Remember to check the water level of your tree daily and keep it in a container that can hold an adequate water supply. To test if your tree is sufficiently hydrated, give a branch a gentle tug. If needles easily break, it's time to water. Be sure to keep your tree, decorations and wrapping papers away from any flames.
