1 - Keep windows, garages and sheds locked, and don’t forget to use deadbolts.
2- Use timers to turn on lights and a television or radio.
3 - Maintain at least a foot of space between a burning candle and anything that can catch fire.
4 - When hanging lights outdoors, avoid using staples or nails which can damage wiring. Use UL-rated clips or wires instead.
5 - Don't overload electrical circuits with holiday lighting; unplug your tree and outdoor lights before going to bed.
6 - Don't leave a spare key in a "hiding place." Burglars know where to look.
7 - Lock your power box with an electricity authority lock (lock to which you and the electric company have a key) so that your home security alarm system can't be cut off from the power supply.
And have a safe and happy holiday season. 'Tis a great time to sell your home as there are much fewer homes on the market during the holiday season. Buyers who are looking for a new home, are serious buyers. Why not consider this time of year when you have much less competition?
