So it’s Christmas time…..you have decorated the tree, hung the lights, finished your shopping and wrapped all the presents and done a ton of Christmas baking! Now it’s time to relax and enjoy the holidays! Christmas time is one of the most magical times of year, the parties, the lights, the presents…..what’s not to enjoy? As we get closer to Christmas, Nicol Insurance wants to help keep your family safe. Here are a few tips to remember during this Holiday Season:
- If you have a real tree, make sure to keep it watered. It seems simple, we know, but Christmas tree fires are statistically more deadly than other fires.
- Do not put your tree up around a heat source. Again, seems obvious, but even over a heat register can cause your tree to dry out and increase the risk of it catching fire.
- Make sure to choose a DD for your holiday party!
- If you are going away for Christmas…..make it appear as though you are home, put outdoor lights on a timer, don’t post your travel plans on facebook and have a neighbour check on your home while you are away.
From our family to yours, we hope that you have a Merry Christmas & a prosperous New Year! We hope that Santa is good to everyone…..regardless of what you have asked for!
