Decorating the home for the holidays is a tradition in which many families across America participate. As people decorate in different ways, a new survey reveals that many people in the United States follow the same types of role models.
For example, many households across the country are taking a safety-focused approach to decorating.
The survey was conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Canvaspop, the Southwest News Service (SWNS) reports. According to the results, almost half of those surveyed (44%) said decorating the home made them worry about safety, especially when young children or pets were involved.

Safety concerns have kept people away from using decorations like fake snow and garlands (which can be flammable and / or pose a choking hazard), with many households simply preferring electric lights.
A Canvaspop spokesperson told SWNS: “Protecting your home for the holidays is easier than most people think. Go for a wall decoration that can easily be hung out of the reach of children or pets, while being appreciated by the whole family. “

The survey, which included 2,000 US residents, also found that while people tend to decorate their entire homes, most of the holiday decorating budget tends to be spent on the tree. Once the tree is decorated, people tend to focus on decorating doors and windows afterwards.
On average, people reported spending around $ 213 on decorations each year.

Additionally, while most people agree that the decorations should be taken down by the end of January, many people also don’t want to be the first house in the neighborhood to take their decorations down.
