Careful with Christmas Lighting

After Halloween, Christmas trees are sure to be sprouting up left and right in homes now, all filled with trimmings and lights to cast some cheery atmosphere in living rooms and against your windows' wood venetian blinds.

Festive, right?

But before installing all these lights, do check first if your Christmas lights are in good condition (no bulbs missing, no wires exposed) and that you are not overwhelming any socket.

If you're the type to really light up your home with lights during the Yuletide season, consider consulting with a professional first as to what things you can do to make sure you don't invite accidents and fires in your home.

Also, make sure you have fire emergency plans in place and a handy fire extinguisher nearby. The best thing about Christmas, after all, is that everyone you love is safe and with you, not your home decor.
