As many Americans partake in the Holiday tradition of setting up their Christmas tree it is important to take a few precautions. 

Precaution #1) if you have a real tree, make sure it is properly watered to prevent it from drying out.  A dry Christmas try is a big fire hazard. 
Precaution #2) Make sure that you check all of your lights thoroughly.  If you have any frays in your lights throw them out and don’t risk the chance of an electrical fire. 
Precaution #3) if you have any small children or anticipate a visit from a curious little one you may want to tie the tree to the wall to prevent any chance of them pulling it down on themselves causing harm to them and your home. 

These are only a few steps to ensure a happy and safe holiday.
