Did you hang your Christmas lights yet?

A few of my neighbors had theirs lit on Thanksgiving.  But whenever you do decide to deck your house in holiday style, be sure to follow these safety tips:

  • Inspect light for fire hazards like frayed cords and broken sockets.
  • Follow the manufacturer’s suggestions for connecting multiple strings, since the recommended is usually three.
  • Don’t use indoor lights outside and don’t use outside lights indoors.
  • Take lights down within 90 days to avoid overexposure to the elements.
  • Pack them safely to lessen damage that could cause fire hazards.
