You’re probably expecting a post on more great last minute gift ideas or fabulous holiday outfits but not this time…we’ll save those for later today or tomorrow. Now is the time to remind you to check the smoke detectors in your house and make sure they are in good working order. With all the lit candles, and fires in fireplaces, and lights on the trees and overloaded outlets, you may be increasing the chances of a fire in your home.
So take a few minutes to make sure that the batteries in your smoke detectors are fresh, and if you have pets or small children, check the wires on tree or decorative lights to make sure that they are safely plugged in and not frayed.
The Fashionable Housewife wishes you a safe and happy holiday.
