Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. It’s also the time the year when thieves ramp-up their activities. Why wouldn’t they? It’s a target rich environment, with shoppers carrying cash and schlepping expensive goods. Parking lots are crowded. People are distracted. It gets dark early. You get the picture. At the same time, homeowners leaving on holiday are a burglar’s bonanza. Not to mention all those packages asking to be “re-purposed.”
I escalate my situational awareness during the holidays, making sure I’m aware, armed and fabulous. Do you take any special precautions during the holidays, or is it just same-old same-old self-defense scenario?
