It other sources of heat. The Council recommends that 1 everyone should be happy. Let's make it a safe Christmas also. Stop and think what would happen should a spark get into the tinsel and tissue paper that usually packs a house at Christmas. Santa might have a chimney 'o come down, but he wouldn't have a house to leave the gilts in. Fire safety is especially important during the holiday season because of added hazards. One of (he principal fire hazards is that beautiful tree in the corner of the living room. The safety tree. Lights which have been used before should be checked for frayed wires or damaged sockets.: Electrical circuits should not be overloaded with additional lights, toys or appliances. Only nonflamable decorations should be u?ed on the tree, and tree lights should be turned olf when no one is at home or when the family retires. As soon as the needles bccin to dry and fall, the tree should be discarded. Fire safety should not be confined to the tree alone. Discarded council says that this danger can; wrappings and packages should be minimized by selecting a freshly cut tree shortly before Christmas. The tree can be kept fresh by cutting the bottom diagonally and placing it in water or wet sand. Placing the tree is also important. It should be placed so it will not block exits, and should be kept well away from the fireplace, stove, powerful electric lights or be put in the trash can as soon as possible. Smokers should also be extra careful where they put their cigarettes, cigars and pipes. Make sure that Santa finds something besides a c h i m ney when he visits your home. Observance of basic rules of home safety can keep (lie, Christmas Season a happy one. Help Family To Keep Healthy There is something else we need to remember, too, about our health. Remember, fatigue, too much food and not the right kind, tension and excitement, all are factors in lowering body resistance to the common cold. The holiday season can easily set the stage for sniffles or <i really bad cold. . . Plan now to help your family guard against this health hazard. Food makes a difference. Start family members with a good, wholesome breakfast every day. Plan for simple, balanced meals during the holiday rush. Eat at regular times as much as possible. Reserve the sweet or rich foods for mealtime dessert. Keep In-! between meal refreshment snacks I light and nutritious. Fruits, fruit juices, crisp, colorful vegetables served with special | dips can be just as tasty and appealing as rich, heavy foods. Tension and fatigue may be hard to control when the rush starts. But proper food before and during the busy season will help keep resistance up. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.
