Christmas is a time of joy, celebration, and spending time with family and friends. So many people look forward to these festivities with great anticipation of enjoying all the magic of this season. However, as in any other time of the year, Christmas is not exempt from accidents. Here are some of the most common accidents that we can find during this time and how to avoid them:

  • Falls and slips. One of the favorite traditions of many families is putting up Christmas decorations at home, but if we're not careful, we can end up in the hospital. Every year, the nation's emergency rooms receive people who have suffered falls while putting up Christmas decorations. Try to use a ladder in good condition that provides good balance, and never put up the Christmas decorations alone!
  • Fires. Christmas lights are an essential part of Christmas tree decorations or a house in general, and the more, the merrier! So other accidents that we usually find during this time are fires due to short circuits, overload in electrical systems, and poorly supervised heat sources. Keep anything flammable like paper, cards, or fabrics away from heat sources. Check that your heating system is working properly, and do not leave any candles lit when you go to sleep. Also, make sure that your fire alarm is working correctly.
  • Alcohol consumption. We know that, during any holiday, one of the most present risks is the consumption of alcohol. Especially when people mix alcoholic beverages with the steering wheel. Make your plans in advance, and if you plan to drink, stay in a hotel if you can't do it with your family. Choose a designated driver or order a taxi, do not endanger your family or other innocent people who are just trying to enjoy the holidays.
  • Food poisoning. Food, food, and more food. That is one of the most anticipated parts of Christmas. With all the delicious dishes prepared these days, families gather around the table to enjoy and share. Try to make sure that the food you serve is in good condition and that, even though the weather is colder these days, it doesn't sit out of the refrigerator for too long.
