Enjoy this chilly Christmas without using electricity

December 22, 2020 – For the first time in years, the forecast is calling for a chilly Christmas! Even though we won’t have a white Christmas, the weather may tempt some SWFL folks to crank on the heat. In addition to using items such as electric blankets and space heaters (while paying close attention to the safety precautions), there are simple ways to stay toasty without using any electricity! Here are a few simple ways to celebrate this special week while keeping warm:

Layer your clothing:
Dress in layers during the day and at bedtime. This will help you maintain a comfy body temperature without having to use any electricity. And remember to wear sock to keep your tootsies warm!

Shut your curtains:
Be sure to shut your curtains when the sun goes down to keep the warmth inside your home. Curtains provide a great barrier between you and the chilly nights to come.

Drink warm drinks and cuddle under the blankets:
Make some hot chocolate and grab the blankets for comfy, cuddly nights.

These are just a few of the many simple ways to enjoy the beautiful weather of this week without feeling Grinchy! Happy Holidays from LCEC!
