Never leave your Christmas tree on overnight. This could lead to excessively drying out your tree, which could lead to a fire.

  • Candy Canes

    Chris O’Kelley, from Kicks 99, shared a special holiday memory. He says: “We made these candy canes back in the 70s from pipe cleaners. My brothers, sisters, and I made them.  They were on our family tree since we made them.  My mother gave them to me before she passed and since then, they have been on every tree I’ve had for 14 years.
