Tip 1: Replace Old Or Damaged Christmas Lights

It might seem tedious, but damage to the cord or light bulb could cause an electric shock when plugged in or, worse, an electric fire. Dispose of any damaged or frayed strings of lights.

Christmas Lights can cause an electrical fire if used irresponsibly. If too many light strings are plugged into a single extension cord, the extension cord can overheat and cause a fire; this is known as a socket overload, or outlet overload.
