An online outfit called InsuranceQuotes has put out a study pointing out the top dangers to your home in this holiday season.
Number 1 on the list is what they call porch pirates, or those who prey upon your Amazon packages or Aunt Minnie's fruitcake that delivery companies leave on your porch when you are not home.
Number 2 is the danger of theft and wanton destruction of your home outdoor holiday decorations...you know...all those lights and that inflatable snowman you got on the spur of the moment at Home Depot.
And Number 3? Now this is a serious one...house fires! The study reports that 6.5 million homes have had a fire started by a Christmas tree (presumably bad lights) and 9.7 million homes have had fires caused by errant candles. They don't cite a time period for those stats, but be aware anyway.
So with due caution...Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
