St. Louis (KSDK) - For some of us, nothing says happy holidays more than lighting up the outside of the house.

In the two months around the holidays about 14 thousand people end up with injuries related to holiday decorating.
That's according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Tim Broughton with Rottler Pest and Lawn Solutions joined First @ 4 with safety tips to keep in mind when putting up holiday lights.
