No Ember December is all about the holidays and more importantly holiday safety which we can start with inspecting decorations, discarding any worn decorations and remembering as beautiful as the lights are we must NOT OVERLOAD electrical outlets and use extension cords safely. As the decorations go up, the festivities draw in guests and with more people in the home we have to ensure other safety precautions are taken as well.
