The holidays are here if you haven’t noticed. With everything on your mind please remember to be safe. State Farm has provided us with some tips to keep you and your family out of harms way during this season. Can you answer these questions?

Q: What are the most common causes of holiday fires in residences?

A: Overloaded electric outlets & faulty wires

Q: How long does it take for a dry Christmas tree to ignite in flames?

A: 7-10 seconds

Q: Name four holiday plant decorations that are toxic to humans and pets.

A: Holly Berries, Jerusalem Cherry, Mistletoe and Poinsettia

Q: How many home burglaries does the FBI report in November and December alone?

A: Nearly 400,000!

Q: Which age groups are at the greatest risk of toy-related injuries?

A: Infants and toddlers

Here are some additional tips from State Farm Insurance pertaining to these quiz questions to make sure everyone stays safe this holiday season.

  • Water your Christmas tree! To help keep your tree fresh, the National Christmas Tree Association recommends adding one quart of water per day for each inch of the trunk’s diameter.
  • Make sure your home is childproof: Keep decorations with small parts out of kid’s reach as well as dangerous decorative plants such as Mistletoe, holly berries and Jerusalem cherries which can be poisonous if consumed in large amounts.
  • Don’t let your garbage advertise your new gadgets: Setting out a box with the picture of a giant TV on it is a prime invitation for burglars

Not only did our friends at State Farm provide us with some great tips but they also partnered with us to host a great giveaway! Two (2) lucky winners will receive a $50 dollar gift card.

    We were careful about why boxes we put out to the road, especially because we just moved to our first house and we have a lot of new stuff

Do you like good music? Do you like FREE music? I’m assuming that you said yes to both. Well, today is your lucky day. One of our favorite hip hop acts Arrested Development has just released a new album titled, Standing at the Crossroads. The album is a celebration of their first 20 years in the music business. Not only is this a great reason to celebrate but they’re also offering the album for FREE via digital download.

A lot of you will remember AD’s front man Speech from the I’ma Fight Back video that we produced or his appearance alongside his wife Yolanda in our most recent film, Still Standing. Regardless of my bias, I’ve listened to the music and I love it! Download your copy below and let us know what you think about the new AD release!
