We will not spank, but I do give DD a smack in the hands when necessary. I only do it I she is trying to repeatedly get into something that might hurt her. For example, she kept trying to get the Christmas lights. The first 3-4 times I will say no. It can hurt you, etc... And move her away/try to redirect her. If she continues to go back an grab the lights I will give her hands a smack and say no and move her away. She needs to know that playing with the tree can hurt her, but I would rather control it with a little smack than have her get burned by the lights or pull the tree down on her.
