Everyone loves Christmas,
but no one… better than the local burglar.
Unfortunately, Christmas can bring opportunity for uninvited guests. By now the majority of the population have put the tree up in the front window complete with twinkling lights and tinsel. Then, lots of families place big, colourful presents under the tree ready for Christmas day. Perfect!
In theory, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this but there are risks and they must be considered. With everyone out working, visiting or just going about their normal daily routine, our homes are empty and an ideal time for local villains to call in.
We should therefore consider waiting until Christmas Eve before putting presents out, at least by then hopefully; all the family will be in the house and with lots of activity comes a big deterrent to any potential invasion.
So, put your sensible head on, ensure that all the locks on the doors and windows are in good working ordered and use them. Make sure that you’re the only one opening the presents under your tree on Christmas morning and crying tears of joy, not sorrow!
