As the holidays approach, it is important to make safety your number one priority. When it comes to decorating your Christmas tree, keep these 5 safety tips in mind: 

  • Watch out for the little ones: Until you can be sure your Christmas tree is standing on its own without tipping over, you should not allow small children to be in the same room. With all the excitement going on surrounding the tree, they may not be aware it may still be unstable. When the tree is sturdy and positioned, you can welcome them into the room to decorate. 
  • Avoid glass ornaments around children: Ornaments are extremely fragile, especially glass ones. Much younger children do not have full coordination, therefore, it is suggested you use plastic or soft ornaments.
