RODALE NEWS, EMMAUS, PA—Holiday mishaps at your house may be more of the burned pies and overcooked ham variety, but there's a lot more that can go wrong. The Emergency Nurses Association says that U.S. visits to emergency rooms spike by about 13,000 between November and January, which is no fun for hospital staff and puts even more of a damper on the patients' holiday cheer. Yet some of the most common holiday injuries are easily preventable.

Here are some common yuletide tragedies, and the best ways to avoid them:

#1: Decorating Dangers

# 2: Santa Clause Sack Back

# 3: Gift-Related Tripping

# 4: Fir on Fire

#5: Alcohol-Free Eggnog (with recipe)

Be wary of the amount of Christmas decorations

Another helpful hint: Be wary of the amount of Christmas decorations you place on your Christmas tree. An overload of electrically powered decorations might short out your circuit and cause a dry tree to burst into flames.
