ST. LOUIS — It's that time of year again when homeowners across the country decorate their houses with fantastic light displays.

Many people in neighborhoods all over the metro have also decked out their homes in Christmas decorations, but be warned, the National Fire Prevention Association says electrical lights are involved in two-out-of-five home Christmas tree fires.
