Short practical guide to healthy holidays.During the holiday season we often wish our loved ones and acquaintances good health! To help to spend the holidays safely, we encourage you to follow these tips to keep you far away from the hospital.
My beautiful Christmas trees
Make sure your Christmas tree is firmly set in a solid stand and is not close to any kind of heat (baseboard heater, radiator) or in a busy area. If you choose to have a real tree, make sure to water it every day.
Take time to check that your smoke detectors are working properly. They save lives!
A candlelit evening or dinner creates an inviting atmosphere, BUT use solid candle holders that won't tip over easily. Never leave lit candles unattended. Keep lighters and matches out of the reach of children.
Brighten your holidays
Christmas lights are designed to be strung outside or inside. Use the right ones in the right place. Check that your electric wires and extension cords are not damaged and avoid overloading outlets. Don't forget to turn the lights off before going to bed or leaving the house.
