Who is the Clark Griswald in your family?

In my family it’s me. As much as I love the holidays, that excitement always seems to come with burning myself thanks to elaborate recipes I would usually avoid or falling off a six foot ladder while hanging lights on my in-laws palm trees. It also means that I am the punch line of several family jokes that seem to magically resurface every year.

But, it turns out that I’m not alone in my holiday accident record.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that approximately 13,000 people are seen every year for accidents related to holiday decorating! This includes falling off the roof while putting up lights, tripping on extra extension cords, candles that are left lit, cooking burns, and even Christmas tree fires.

Because we don’t want you or your loved ones to spend the holidays covered in Band-Aids or singing carols in the ER, we are hosting a Holiday Safety #WellnessWed Tweetchat!

Join MomsRising (@MomsRising ) and experts from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (@OnSafety) this Wednesday, December 4th at 2 PM ET/ 11am PT, for our Holiday Safety #WellnessWed Tweetchat to learn more about how to keep your family safe this holiday season!

We will be answering your questions and trading stories, so please join us via #WellnessWed and follow us on Twitter via @MomsRising.

Can’t make it to #WellnessWed this week? Please share your holiday hazard stories and questions about seasonal safety in the comments below and we will share them from the twitter account!

Hope to see you there!
