6th Day of Hanuchristmakwanakah: American Red Cross Style

Believe it or not, we have made it half way through our holiday singing bonanza of "12 Days of Hanuchristmakwanzakah." Today's tip is doing double duty - since I am busy rehearsing and singing amazing Hanuchristmakwanakah tips to the tune of "12 Days of Christmas," today's tip is our preparedness tip of the week.

I know, you may shout for joy here.

Let's get started preparedness friends. I'm sure you know the tune by now.

On the sixth day of Hanuchristmakwanzakah, the American Red Cross advised me
Avoid danger while cooking
Red Cross train your babysitterrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!
Prevent hypothermia
Don't spread the flu
Please drive safely
And prepare my vehicle for traveling!

Look at you becoming quite a preparedness freak like someone else I know (yes, I meant me). You are catching on very quickly. I'll put in a good word with our amazingly skilled American Red Cross - Dallas Area Chapter carolers. Maybe they'll take us as a package deal.

This week's tip is a great one. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, cooking is the leading cause for residential fires. This holiday season we are planning to change that together. While you are cooking, stay in the kitchen and be alert. Keep anything flammable - such as pot-holders, towels or curtains - away from your stove top. Have a "kid-free zone" of at least 3 feet around the store and areas where hot food or drinks are prepared or carried.

Today's video is another fun one. From your favorite rodents - Alvin, Simon and Theodore.
