Everyone knows Christmas isn’t the same without a tree. There are things you can do this holiday to ensure that your tree stays a beautiful decoration and does not become the subject of your disaster holiday stories. If you are purchasing an artificial holiday tree make sure that it is listed as being “Fire Resistant”. Therefore, making it more likely that in the case of an electrical shortage within the lighting a tree will not burn so quickly.

Also, if you have a real tree you want to make sure that you keep it watered. Due to the nature of trees if they are dry they have a tendency to catch fire easily. Some lighting can create heat and a dry tree is susceptible to heat damage.

Using lights for decorating can add an extra flair to any holiday. However, you want to make sure that you are using them properly. Check lighting for breaks in the electrical lines. If there is a broken electrical wire there is a heightened chance of a fire or electrical shock. Also, if there are any broken or bents plugs do not use them. These broken plugs can not only short out the light string or any other lighting but, can cause damage to the socket they are plugged into.
