During your holiday celebrations, in the midst of the joviality, it might be common for a friend to say, “The roof is on fire!” However, if he’s being literal when he makes such a statement, it suddenly becomes a lot less fun.

A lot of people assume that if the lights they used last year didn’t create any unnecessary friction (except for maybe with your neighbors who were hoping you’d take them down a little bit before the fourth of July), they’ll be good for at least one more year of use. Not so, according to the U.S. Fire Administration. They urge you to thoroughly check your old holiday lights to ensure that there is no fraying or exposed wire.

It’s good to also keep in mind that trees are the next best thing to kindling you probably have in your home.  Make sure to vacuum up all of the dried needles that start piling up around your tree the longer you’ve had it. And while putting live candles might seem like a romantic call back to the original tradition of tree decoration, it’s never a good idea,

 

Christmas tree on FIRE
This Christmas Tree is blazing

whether or not you are in your home at the time. Electric lights aren’t entirely foolproof: you should never leave your home with lights still on, no matter how cheerful it makes you feel to walk back into your multi-colored home. According the Iowa Department of Public Safety, 48% of all Christmas tree fires are started by faulty lighting and 21% of holiday home fires are started by Christmas trees. It’s probably a good idea to ensure that the lights you’re using are appropriate for the outdoor or indoor use they’re intended for. A UL certification by the independent Underwriters Laboratories, which tests for electric shock and fire prevention couldn’t hurt matters, either.

Although things can obviously go a little bit differently than planned, it’s easy to take the small but necessary precautions to prevent problems. Just a simple check to make sure you’re lights aren’t falling apart could avert unnecessary trauma.
