Using Real Christmas Trees
A real Christmas tree fills your home with that wonderful pine scent, and it’s such a fun time cutting down your own, but did you know they are also dangerous? That’s right. Real Christmas trees can cause house fires. It’s essential to shut off your Christmas lights when you go to bed at night to avoid causing dangerous fires in your home. There is an average of 210 Christmas tree fires every year around Christmas time. There are ways to ensure your tree won’t cause a fire in your home. Be sure to buy a freshly cut tree or cut one down yourself. This ensures your tree won’t be too dry. Also, be sure to water your tree, so it doesn’t dry out. This is when fires can occur with Christmas trees. Lastly, keep your Christmas tree away from fire sources like fireplaces.
