If you’ve heard it once you’ve heard it a thousand times: The holidays are the most wonderful time of the year. No matter what you celebrate, there’s something nice about the light, cheerful feeling that tends to take to the air around the holidays. But before you get too swept away in the spirit of the season, pause your tree-trimming, candle-lighting, and merriment for a moment and consider: There’s a lot that can go wrong around the holidays. If you thought not receiving the gifts on your wish-list was traumatic, consider the possibility of your Christmas tree catching on fire. And with 91% of holiday trips being done by automobile, imagine the increase in your chances of getting into a jolly little fender-bender. Besides the likeliness of certain types of accidents, there’s also the emotional trauma of the season to consider. Most people are dealing with financial stress and the pressures of giving, or the emotional pressure that comes from visiting family. The following infographic takes a look at some of the most important reasons that, sometimes, the most wonderful time of the year can also be extremely hazardous to your health.
