I’ve mailed my holiday cards, wrapped my gifts, and shipped and wired special orders to family and friends. But I won’t curl up on the couch in my snuggie to watch my recording of the “Yule Log” just yet. I’m carving out time for another of my favorite holiday activities: flipping through cookbooks for new holiday recipes.


 

As we prepare for holiday meals, let’s keep in mind the “Put a Freeze on Winter Fires” campaign by NFPA and the United States Fire Administration to promote fire safety during the winter months.


While Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires, Christmas Day and Christmas Eve rank second and third.


 

NFPA’s cooking safety information, safety tips, and videos, including Dan Doofus’ “Kitchen for Trouble” and “[Watch what you Heat | http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEqRIqaiksY]” help reinforce important messages as we enjoy the holidays.
