The Christmas celebrations are around the corners and you should make hay while the sun shines. When you begin your preparations early, you will get a stress-free and safe celebration resulting in more enjoyment. The coming lines will help you keep the safe side at your Christmas celebrations, especially if you will celebrate inside your home.
When it comes to purchasing a new Christmas tree, you should use your finger to check the tree. If its needles come of easily, it will not withstand the heat of your decorative lights and vice versa. When you bring the tree home, try to cut an inch of the trunk and place it in a container of cold water at the coldest part of the place for about a day to avoid the shock. After the first day, you can place the Christmas tree in a warm room away from its exit, heating devices, and pathways.
The greenery of your Christmas tree can easily harm your children and pets; so, keep the tinsel and garland parts away from their reach and let them share you such an amusing task.
Installing the lights is the most enjoying and dangerous stage of your decoration process. Before you install such lights, you should exclude any frayed, worn, or blackened parts of the wire and any damaged strings. To avoid electrical shocks, you should install bulbs in all the sockets and connect only three strings together. Whenever the festivals end, take such a tree outdoors, as it will dry out soon.
To keep your Christmas festivals safe, you should keep your decorative elements away from the heat of the candles and fireplace and use safe decorative materials such as the non-combustible and flame retardant materials. When you install such lighting bulbs and strings around your home, don’t overload the usage of a certain circuit or extension cord. For more life-saving celebrations, you should have fire extinguishers and flashlights with batteries at home during the holidays.
