Christmas Lights and Candle Safety Tips

Posted on: December 22, 2010

Make this Christmas season a safe and happy holiday by choosing your decorations carefully. Each year you hear about homes being destroyed and families being injured by fires due to faulty Christmas lights or candles. This is a tragedy that can be prevented simply by following a few simple safety tips.

Start by pulling your lights out early and checking them for age and damage. If your Christmas lights are old and worn, invest in a new set of lights. They’re not very expensive and when you consider the alternative and the dangers old lights create, it’s well worth the expense. The newer lights are also safer to use and have been designed to burn longer without getting hot enough to cause a fire.

If you’re using a real tree make sure it’s watered and kept healthy. Dry branches and hot Christmas lights create a recipe for trouble. If you do notice the tree drying out before you’re ready to take it down, unplug the lights and give the tree plenty of water. Only continue using the lights if the branches soak up the water and turn green again. At the end of the holiday season, store your lights carefully to prevent damage that could create a fire hazard next year.

Candles are another danger that causes fires during Christmas. They look beautiful sitting around the home and scented candles can fill the air with a fresh sent that’s relaxing and cozy but they should never be left unattended. Don’t take a nap, visit with the neighbors or run to the store with candles burning.

Make sure they are completely distinguished before putting them away and if you have small children keep them up high out of the child’s reach. You can also consider using the artificial candles that look like the real thing but uses light bulbs instead of a flame. These are decorative and completely safe to use. Following these simple Christmas lights and candle safety tips can help your family have a safe, happy holiday.
