The holidays are a time for happiness, whether it means spending time with family, ripping open presents under the Christmas tree or just enjoying the cool weather, but things can still go wrong this time of year. If you know about the most common holiday accidents though, you may be able to prepare yourself against such accidents.

Remember, if you’re going out during cold weather, wear something warm to prevent hypothermia, but while you’re inside, be careful with your space heaters and fireplaces as these are responsible for many dangerous holiday accidents every year. Also watch out for your holiday decorations, especially Christmas trees and while putting your lights up on your house. Remember, Christmas can be a happy time of year, but no one wants to be in the ER due to an easily avoidable holiday accident.
