How to “insure” a safe holiday season
‘Tis the season to be jolly. ‘Tis also the time to be very, very busy. There’s baking, decorating, shopping, party hopping and, of course, party hosting. If that last one is big on your list, don’t forget to add holiday precautions to your ‘things-to-do’ so this year’s holidays are safe and sound for you and your loved ones.
It’s easy to lose sight of some of the dangers that can crop up during the holiday season. Here are some important reminders of things that can go wrong and suggestions to prevent this from happening:
Oh, Christmas Tree: Remember, a wet tree is a safe tree. Water your tree regularly throughout the holiday season and under no circumstances should you leave a lit tree unattended.
Be the Host with the Most: Keep an eye on your guests’ alcohol intake. If you feel someone has had too much to drink, don’t let them get behind the wheel of a car. Take their keys away, offer them a spare bedroom, find a designated driver, or call them a cab.
Be a Good Neighbour:Keep your sidewalk and walkway free of ice and snow. The last thing you want is to have a guest – or neighbour – fall and injure themselves due to your negligence.
With so much going on, it’s easy for little things to slip. And without proper insurance, those little things could turn into big problems down the road.
