Christmas this year may not be normal, but it should still be a time to relax and enjoy a holiday in the safety of our own homes. However, previous Christmas’s have shown that we should remain on our guard at all times.
- Festive statistics from RoSPA and National Accident Helpline show that although Christmas is a magical time of year, it is also a time when there are more accidents in the home, for both humans and pets.
Decorations, fires, new toys, visitors, cooking, and over- excited children pose a lot of potential hazards. Maybe visitors in particular this year! Factor in the additional seasonal stress and alcohol and you can start to understand how people fall foul of the festive season.
