How are holiday decorations able to damage a house

I don’t care what the holiday is, I love to decorate.

I enjoy decorating for the holidays and it can be pretty elaborate.

My favorite holiday for decorating,is Halloween. Everyone is different with their decorations, unlike at Christmas. I have a basement full of Halloween decorations. We even have a coffin in the basement and someone new is sleeping there, every year. Last year, I want to break out some old decorations that we hadn’t used in years. We wanted to put up our graveyard again, and we wanted to use our Zombie stake lights. I knew they had to be in the attic, but I couldn’t get up there to find them. I was a bit too tall to be able to crawl around comfortably. I got my daughter to go into the attic with me because she was small enough to search underneath the roof slope. When she finally found the light stakes, we were both thrilled. I was really excited until I heard the screech of tearing metal. I immediately knew what the sound was. The decorations had been up against the ductwork and they had caught on a nail which ripped through the ductwork. We could hear the air hissing out of the hole in the ductwork. I went downstairs and got some duct tape and had my daughter place it over the hole. We took the decorations downstairs and I called the HVAC company. I wanted them to send someone out to repair the ductwork. They told me they would have someone there the following day and in the meantime, I forgot about the torn ductwork and put up my Halloween display.
