The Dublin Fire Brigade have taken to Twitter to warn festive revellers of the fire hazards that this time of year can involve.
From faulty lights to unattended candles, the brigade is using Twitter as a medium to keep people safe this winter.
The DFB has warned against purchasing Christmas lights and decor that don't carry a CE mark.
The are particularly warning against these "rice lights," which were recalled by the European Commissioner.
The EU Commissioner also warns against these LED lights, which have been recalled after causing electrocution.
The product is being withdrawn from the market and anyone who has these lights in their home is urged to return them to the retailer.
The CE mark is a symbol that indicates that products conform with relevant EU directives regarding health and safety or environmental protection.
Neither of the above products carry the mark.
The Dublin Fire Brigade is also asking that families check that their lights aren't damaged after a year in storage.
Lights with exposed or frayed wiring should never ben used.
It's the time of year where almost everything takes on some festive flair.
While glittery Christmas jumpers, novelty pyjamas and even seasonal phone covers might be expected, there's one Christmas themed gadget we didn't see coming.
The Christmas lights phone charger is one way to spice up your life, or would make the ideal gag gift for the office Grinch.
This uber-festive piece of novelty tech has gained a cult following online, with most of its' retailers selling out.
Luckily there are quite a few remaining on eBay and Amazon, so opt for express shipping if you want it under your tree.
The Christmas lights phone charging cable is currently only available for the iPhone 5, 5S, 5C, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, and 6s Plus, so Android users shouldn't be asking Santa for one.
Even though Halloween is still ten days away, many shops and department stores have already put up their Christmas lights and trees.
Brown Thomas has always been one of those stores that go all out for the festive season, and they went ahead and decorated their windows today – a full two weeks earlier than last year.
The display is somewhat more traditional than previous years, and it was met by some joy, as well as some cynicism.
Here's what the people of Twitter had to say about it:
Well… What do you think of this early display?
