Never leave mobile little ones alone in a room where holiday candles are lit. It's also best to use wide, short candles as opposed to long tapered candles, as there's less chance of a baby or toddle knocking them down. Over 300 house fires are cause each year by Christmas tree issues; so...
  • Always keep your Christmas tree watered.
  • Never place your tree near heat sources like a wood stove or wall heater.
  • Use holiday lights, not candles on your tree.
Check your holiday lights - cracked bulbs, frayed wires and loose connections on lights are more likely to cause a fire. If you buy an artificial tree, choose a flame resistant one. Stay tuned, because later, we'll be looking at some baby-specific holiday safety tips.
