With the approaching holidays, it may be a good idea to think about adding a dedicated branch circuit and receptacle outlet or two for your seasonal lighting or displays, to avoid overloading existing circuitry.
ALWAYS have a "nuisance tripping" breaker inspected by a qualified, licensed electrician; NEVER try to "fix" this problem by replacing the existing breaker with a higher amperage rated breaker, as this can lead to fire, injury and even death.
Installing GFCI protection for any branch circuit supplying areas where children have access is also a good idea. This upgrade has the added benefit of allowing replacement of old "2-prong" (ungrounded) outlets with modern, "3-prong" outlets in a code compliant way.
Each year in this country, hundreds of people die, and thousands more are seriously injured in accidents involving electrical fires and shocks. Almost all of these instances could have been prevented by following simple safety guidelines.
Another thing worth considering, if small children will be visiting, is replacing existing standard 15 and 20 Amp receptacles with "Tamper Resistant" style receptacles. We all know how curious kids are but car keys (or anything metal) and electrical outlets are not a good area of exploration.
