The holidays are a magical time of year—there is Santa, his reindeer, the goodwill, generosity, and kindness of the season, the presents, the family! It’s one of my favorite holidays and I love celebrating with my family and friends. But, did you know that each year during the holidays ER’s open their doors to 8,700 people with holiday related injuries. Just a reminded to be careful and avoid any unnecessary time in the hospital this time of year.
The good people at the American Academy of Pediatrics and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission have put together this great list of precautions to take during the holiday. We’ve split the list into two for easier reading…make sure to check back tomorrow for the second installment!
