    I just read some great safety information on keeping our home and ourselves safe this Holiday season. Most of it had to do with our electrical cords and electric devices, so I thought it would fit well in this category.

    Some of the tips were:
    1. Choosing a tree that was well hydrated and keeping it hydrated, as not to cause a fire hazard when it is dried out.
    2. Replace bulbs on strands of lights with the appropriate bulb, not one with a higher wattage, as it could cause a fire.
    3. Water your live tree daily.

    These were just a few out of many that I found on various fire prevention websites.

    Here's a good tip -- don't buy a live tree. Trees are important storehouses for carbon. The more trees we cut down, the more carbon goes into the atmosphere, the more global warming. Try a fake tree, or even better, decorate a nice big house plant! But don't kill a tree.
