Look at the candles and holders once they are on the tree - Make sure you have positioned the candles so they are 100% clear of anything that could catch fire. This includes another limb, other candles, garlands, tinsel or nearby Christmas ornaments. Pay special attention to higher branches. Are they hanging over the candle in such a way that they could catch fire when the candle is lit? If so, you must move the candle.
Using the kids artwork, paintings and drawings from throughout the year will both involve them and use up all of that paper you have lying around. Paintings and collages can easily be turned into cute cards. Even worksheets with their colouring and writing on it can be used. Including the kids in your cardmaking does need some planning, so gather your materials and tools ahead of time. There is no surer way of boring the kids by running around trying to find those scissors when they are ready to go.
Its not hard. One of the best ways to step back from the brink, slow down and restore some sanity to the holidays is to ditch the electric lights and LED Christmas lights and go green. Replace your energy-gobbling lights with Real Christmas Tree Candles. Or use fewer electric lights and add Christmas Candles. Either way, you wont regret it. The sight of your Christmas tree awash in the natural glow of real candlelight will stop your friends and family in their tracks and make them go weak in the knees. Its radiant and indescribably beautiful.
