Surprising Holiday Hazards

Christmas Tree Safety

Older artificial trees and those made in China often contain lead. If you choose an artificial tree, buy new and check the packaging. Unfortunately, real trees aren't always safe either. The needles can cause painful cuts in the mouth and throat of a child who swallows them. Warn your child not to put any needles in her mouth and clean up loose needles daily. (Watering your tree every day will also help keep the needles from dropping.)
