  • This Christmas, before you enjoy the magic and wonder of twinkling lights in your home, take a few moments to ensure that you have safely illuminated your home inside and out. * Candles provide a warm glow, but they are major fire hazards – use battery-operated candles instead. * Before you string lights around the tree or hang them from your porch, carefully check for cracked cords, frayed ends, or loose connections. * Make sure that cords are not pinched under heavy furniture or in doors or windows. * Ensure that your outdoor lights are rated for outdoor use.  Indoor lights have thinner insulation that may become damaged when exposed to weather. * Use insulated hooks to hang lights – screw or tacks may pierce the cable and become electrified. * Purchase LED lights, which run cooler than incandescent lights and also save energy. * Turn… Read More

For a simple, and functional, holiday centerpiece, add a variety of nuts and clementines to a decorative bowl. Make sure you have enough dishes for your party guests. If you are short, your local dollar store likely will carry affordable ceramic plates. Stock up on frozen appetizers and hors d’oeuvres that you can heat and serve in a few minutes –… Read More
