(NewsUSA) - Let there be lights! Christmas lights, that is. And if the timing of when some homeowners started hanging them this year is any measure - as early as mid-October we’re really, really anxious for some holiday cheer. Most of you will opt for relatively understated displays. Others will try to outdo neighbors by creating winter wonderland scenes so dazzlingly bright that aliens (assuming they’re out there) can see them from galaxies away. “When I pass a suburban house festooned with twinkly, colored fairy lights, I always scream ‘Bravo’ out of the window of my car,” Simon Doonan, creative ambassador of Barneys New York, has admitted. Whichever, here are some safety tips to keep in mind:
the Center for the Advancement of Roofing Excellence. Instead, use clips that hang from the gutter or eaves. * Metallic trees require special care. Gee, what could possibly go wrong by hanging electric lights on them? “The tree can become charged with electricity from faulty lights,” warns the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, “and any person touching a branch could be electrocuted.” Colored spotlights, above or beside them, are the way to go. * Embrace the buddy system. Maybe they were all drinking spiked egg nog, but one oft-quoted study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that 6,000 people wind up in emergency rooms annually just from holiday decorating-related falls. As most of the injured are men and most fall from ladders, let’s all say it together: “Asking someone to hold the ladder for you, whether you’re stringing lights on a roof or a tall tree, isn’t wussy.”
from the cord. “You risk damaging the gutter that way,” says Joplin, “and potentially the shingle if you didn’t clip it correctly to begin with.” Especially if you are planning elaborate displays, you might want to consider hiring a pro. GAF (gaf.com), North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, makes it easy to find the most reputable (and insured) ones in your area by searching its website’s GAF Master Elite Contractor database. Oh, and if you’re truly into wowing others beyond your immediate street -no, probably not E.T.s -- it’s best to stagger two sets of lights side by side to increase the density.
* Don’t Let ‘er Rip: Even worse than being that one house on the block that never gets around to taking down decorations till spring is this: disassembling by haphazardly pulling lights off your roof
* Never hang lights from your roof’s shingles. “Making even the tiniest of holes in them or any roof component -even with a stapler -- will let moisture or leaks in, and potentially rot the roof,” says Jason Joplin, program manager of

make nests out of cozy stockings, spiders will spin webs into your wreaths and weevils will burrow into your potpourri.
Not all decorations are meant to last forever, and some should be thrown out after one season. Remember to go through In order to keep your decorations free your collection and check for moldy of pests and prevent nasty surprises or damaged articles. Since mold and this December, NPMA recommends moisture can attract more pests, it’s these prevention tips: best to discard those items.
(NewsUSA) For those who look forward to dusting off their Christmas decorations and unpacking strand after strand of twinkling lights, discovering a nest of mice or other creatures can be alarming. can find their way into homes and nest in boxes of holiday decorations that have been stored in attics, basements and garages since last season,” says Missy Henriksen, vice president of public affairs for the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). Holiday decorations that sit in boxes, undisturbed for long periods of time in the attic, basement or closet, provide the perfect hiding spots for pests. The usual culprits are beetles, mice, spiders and weevils. Mice will
Cardboard boxes can barely keep out dust, let alone hungry pests. Instead, keep wrapping paper and ornaments in large plastic totes and containers. The containers should have tightly sealed lids to keep the contents dry and secure.
If you’re faced with a real infestation, consult a pest management professional to figure out the best course of action. To find more preventive tips or locate a pest expert in your area, go to www.pestworld.org.
All stockings, tree skirts and other cloth decorations should be washed and sealed in plastic bags. Damp or dirty table linens can be a pest haven and also harbor germs and bacteria. Plastic bags will help keep items fresh and safe from insects.

munity they enjoy and plan to stay. This group also generally has the most economic stability and time to make their house a happy home."
The survey shows that individuals in the empty-nester stage have higher happy home scores across the board compared to all other stages of life. The main factors that contribute to their happiness are their communities, location and features of their homes. Compared to other stages of life, empty-nesters feel the safest in their communities, most connected to their neighbors and are also the happiest with the condition of their homes.
Family Features) It is said that as you get older you become wiser, but as homeowners grow older, do they become happier? According to a nationwide homeowner happiness survey conducted by HomeAdvisor, the answer is yes. This was the case of Bob and Joanie Johnson, who dropped their youngest child off at college in August 2015.
Overall homeowner happiness boils down to a combination of three important factors: accessibility to attractions and services, community and dwelling. Interestingly, research shows that accessibility and community play a far bigger role in happiness than dwelling.
1. Upgrade and remodel your home.
Update the landscaping or change out cabinet hardware. These modest to moderate changes can transform your home into a place that fits your needs.
2. Make sure you have adequate gathering space.
Family rooms, living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens and patios are great areas to focus on to create an entertainment experience for you and your guests.
3. Get to know your neighbors.
Research shows that the happiest homeowners enjoy and feel comfortable, as well as safe, with their neighbors and community. To reach this comfortability, try organizing a neighborhood event.
4. Make your home a place you want to stay. "A homeowner's identity and quality

"Homeowner ents who become empty nesters happiness is really about location, have this revelation and start focus- location, location." ing on projects that have been placed on the backburner while This rings true for the Johnsons, kids were in the house. who are far happier with the acces"It makes sense that empty nesters sibility of services in their commuhave the highest happy home nity and their neighbors than other scores," said Dr. Karen Ruskin, life-stage groups. HomeAdvisor's Happiness Advisor. Ruskin offers these four tips to "They have likely settled in a commake your home a happier place:
The happiest homeowners feel their home is their favorite place and somewhere they want to stay long term. Get comfortable, hang art, put up those family pictures that are sitting in a box, paint the walls or plant a garden.
