Christmas First Aid: a Quick Survival Guide

Christmas is hopefully a time that is full of cheer, but when the drinks flow and everyone’s having a good time, it can also result in some pretty strange happenings that require awesome Christmas First Aid. So, have an amazing time, but roll up your sleeves and be prepared to get stuck in! 

Here are just a few things to watch out for… 

It might sound crackers, but in recent years, several people have suffered broken arms as a result of ‘cracker pulling incidents’ or burned themselves setting fire to Christmas puddings!

Typical Christmas Day accidents include parents accidentally stabbing themselves with scissors, which they’ve used to assemble toys, instead of using a screwdriver.

We’re often encouraged to ‘reach for the stars’, but every year about 1,000 people are injured by their Christmas tree – usually while fixing stars, lights or other decorations to the higher branches!

It’s great to feel the buzz at this time of year, but maybe not whilst watering the Christmas tree with the lights plugged in so take care!

Look after yourselves and each other and all the best for 2019. Until then, if you’ve got any questions or would like some help, simply get in touch – we’d love to hear from you!
