Government to Save Americans From Christmas Lights

The federal government has decided regulating Christmas lights is a top priority for the citizens of this country. Here is more from The Washington Free Beacon:

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a regulation for Christmas lights on Monday, deeming some holiday decorations a “substantial product hazard.”

The ruling applies to a variety of Christmas decorations, including “stars, wreathes, candles without shades, light sculptures, blow-molded (plastic) figures, and animated figures.”

The CPSC said the regulation is necessary because Christmas lights can be dangerous.

What caused this ruling?

The CPSC said there have been 258 deaths associated with Christmas lights between 1980 and 2013. However, fatal incidents have been on the decline, with an average of less than one fatal (0.9) incident a year since 2008. The number of people who die of alcohol poisoning in California every year is greater than the number of Americans who have been killed by Christmas lights in the past three decades.
