  • Create a clear pathway for walking; avoid wires, cords or throw rugs.

  • Use ribbon or yarn instead of sharp hooks to hang ornaments and decorations.

  • Avoid decorating with items that look edible.

  • Avoid confusing, blinking lights.

  • Do not leave lighted candles or fireplace unattended.

  • Use plastic or silk mistletoe rather than real; if eaten, it is toxic.

  • Use non-alcoholic beer, wine, or sparkling cider.
