Holiday decorating safety tips

For many people, nothing elicits holiday cheer more than seeing festive lights and decorations. Sparkling lights, adorned trees, holiday villages, and life-sized replicas of beloved characters like Frosty and Rudolph can bring smiles to the faces of viewers of all ages. While holiday decorations are fun and beautiful, it’s important to take precautions to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Whether decorating inside or outside, there are several risks to consider because decorating-related injuries are more common than you may think. According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC):

  • On average, there are about 160 decorating-related injuries each day during the holiday season, with about half of the incidents involving falls.
  • During the 2019 holiday season, approximately 14,800 people were treated in emergency rooms due to decorating-related injuries.
  • From 2016 to 2018, on average, there were about 100 Christmas tree fires and about 1,100 candle fires in November and December, resulting in 30 deaths, 180 injuries, and nearly $56 million in property damage each year.

To help keep your family and home safe this holiday season, check out these decorating safety tips from the American Red Cross and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
