(NBC News) -- Decorating for the holiday season is all fun and reindeer games, until someone gets hurt.

Falls related to holiday decorating are serious, and were the number one decorating-related cause of trips to the emergency room during last year's holiday season.

"If you're going string lights up high, make sure you use the appropriate ladder size," advises Kim Dulic of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The cpsc estimates that every November and December at least 12,000 people are seriously hurt decking their halls.
