Christmas is really a busy time of the year. It is true that we get holidays from our work and schools, but adults get busy preparing for the festival while kids get busy playing with their friends. Even though this time of the year is the happiest of them all, it can certainly turn into a nightmare as well; especially when you don’t take precautions. As we all know that accidents can happen anytime and any day, so we should always be careful about it.
According to the video below, in 2011 alone, 10 people died, 20 were injured and about $17 million worth of property was damaged because of the fire started from the Christmas tree. It is hard to believe, but this is the fact. Christmas trees are decorated with lights, and when it is dry, even a small spark can cause a huge fire, like forest fire. Watch how it can occur and how we can prevent it in the video below.
This is the experiment conducted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Everyone should watch this! Do let us know your thoughts about it in the comments.
