Christmas Decoration Safety Tips 2020

Stores have been decorated for Christmas since the middle of October. I think everyone is looking to make this holiday season as special as possible because of what the year has brought. We found these tips from the One Medical on making your holiday season as safe as possible:

  • Watch That Tree! Keep your tree (whether live or fake) away from any heat sources. Live trees are extemely flammable with their needles & fake trees with their “non-toxic” materials.
  • Recycle Your Paper! Don’t burn wrapping paper in the fireplace, the inks & plastic coatings may be toxic and the loose ash could cause fires.
  • Check Those Bulbs! Inspect your Christmas lights for any damage before you go through the trouble of stringing them. Loose wires or sockets warrant the possiblity of fire.
  • Get Unbreakables. Decorating your tree with unbreakable ornaments is ideal around pets & young children. If you have heirloom or fragile ornaments, secure them to the tree or display them on a table or shelf instead.
  • Forego the Plants. Poinsettias are beautiful and festive for the season, but are very toxic to children & pets. Best to go with a fake arrangement or wreath to enjoy them.

Be sure to check out the full article from One Medical with many more tips on making your holidays safer!
