5 Tips To Enjoy Your Holiday This Year + Bonus Quick Tips From Michael Singh Posted on December 11, 2020December 11, 2020 by Michael Singh The holiday season is a hectic time for everyone, so Singh Insurance & Financial Services is here to make sure you and your family have a perfect holiday while staying safe. Here are 5 quick tips to help keep the holidays secure and fun!Tip #1: Property ProtectionMany homeowners decorate their homes for the holidays, so you will certainly see homes with tons of Christmas lights. However, the holidays only come once a year, and then after it’s over we toss all the lights and decorations into a storage bin until next year. Before you decorate your home, check to see if the lights still work – you may never know what might have happened during its time in storage. Make sure to cover all wires and light boxes to prevent any tripping hazards and also be sure to set your lights to a level that will not blind passing drivers.Tip #2: Turn Off All Lights at the End of the DayHaving your holiday lights and decorations on 24/7 is not the safest idea. Keeping your lights on for a long time will wear out your wires, creating a fire hazard that you do not want. It isimportant to set a timer on the lights, so it automatically turns on and off during the day. If you have old-fashion lights, then set a reminder for yourself to turn off the lights before you go to bed.Tip #3: Keep the Tree Watered and SafeMost homeowners purchase fake trees during the holidays because it is easier to decorate and clean up, but some prefer going out every year and purchasing a real living tree. Dry trees are a major fire hazard, so make sure to water it daily.Tip #4: Stay Alert in the KitchenYou can’t have a Christmas dinner without mom’s oven roast beef or grandma’s pumpkin pie!The holidays are always a time to have fun and create delicious foods in the kitchen, but howmuch is a little too much? Make one dish at a time and monitor the cooking times to reduce the possibility of a fire. Too much kitchen usage can and will create an unsafe environment. Plus, nobody likes a burnt pie!Tip #5: Always Have Receipt with Your GiftHoliday shopping can be difficult if you do not know what gifts to get. If you are planning onpurchasing a gift for someone that you do not know too well, always provide a gift receipt, sothey can go and exchange it for something else. Another benefit of having a gift receipt isallowing yourself to replace the item if it were to be damaged or misplaced.Bonus Quick Tips From Michael Singh● Making a big purchase such as a car or boat this year for a Christmas or Hanukkah gift?Remember to get the vehicle insured as soon as possible.
