    Cards, stockings, decorations....all hanging right above that fireplace insert or stove!

    NO - ......
    The convection currents from a stove are perfect for moving that stuff around until it finally falls on the hot stove.

    Decide on another area of the home to put all these paper and combustible objects - keep your hearth, fireplace and mantel just as they are the rest of the year!

    Ah come on Craig, where's your sense of adventure? Gambling on whether or not that stocking will fall is great fun. Heck you could even start a pool as to exactly whose stocking is going to burn the house down!
