We at Remland Insurance hope that your holiday season has been wonderful thus far…but we wanted to remind you the importance of maintaining your Christmas tree and keeping it ALIVE until December 26th!

Each year millions of Christmas trees are purchased and decorated so beautifully in homes across America. The Christmas tree becomes the focal point of your Christmas decorating, and usually is host to all sorts of meaningful and memorable ornaments.

In a rush to decorate your home for the full-season, there is a chance that your tree was purchased in late November or early December…and is now looking a bit dry. A dry Christmas tree mixed with strands of lights that get left on for hours a day can pose as a potential starter for a house fire. As funny as it is in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation…it would NOT have the same comedic effect if it happened to you!

Here are a few safety tips brought to you by ABC 7:

  • Turn off Christmas tree when you leave the house
  • Check smoke detector batteries
  • Make sure a carbon monoxide detector is installed
  • Do not leave candles burning unattended.
  • Try feeding your Christmas Tree 7-Up, they like the sugar, and may stay alive longer.

Your California insurance policy is an important all year long, but especially while your home is host to a dry Christmas Tree during these later parts of December. Be safe, and enjoy spending the holidays with your family and friends.
