'Tis the season... for accidents.
There are so many things that go wrong while in the pursuit of showing off who has the most holiday spirit. One way that people chose to do so is to have their house smelling like the season. Another way people battle for the holiday spirit crown is by having candles light the night from their windows. Even though spirit isn't a competition, safety can be. Make sure you're the winner when it comes to holiday safety.
This time of year, we tend to like the warmth and ambiance that candles give us and with all the holiday scents. How can you resist? There's all sorts of wonderful holiday scents: vanilla, cinnamon, peppermint, pine, etc. The list goes on and on!
However, with candles comes responsibility. Candles can be tipped over by children and pets, have their flames ignite the drapes, or even crack the holder and fall out. The result of all of these: a fire, and fires can be extremely devastating with all the damage they cause.
Remember, we love the smell of candles, not the smell of a burning home.
There is nothing so warm and welcoming as driving by a house to see candles in the windows. Who cares if they're electric or battery operated? The message is still the same, and they are certainly much safer than having tiny flames located throughout a house.
Again, keep in mind that they can be knocked off the window sill and if the bulb breaks, a fire could start. However, the probability of a fire starting is less with a bulb than with an actual flame from a candle!
