As people begin to make plans for the holiday season, thoughts increasingly turn to Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas gifts and traveling to enjoy it all with family and friends. Unfortunately, the holidays also are a time when safety may be overlooked, which means unwanted guests such as accidents and injuries may invite themselves to the festivities. 

John Griswold, M.D., executive director of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) Clinical Research Institute and a surgeon for Texas Tech Physicians, said there are steps people can take to make the holidays as safe as they are fun. Whether planning a large family gathering or a small get-together with friends, Griswold said thinking ahead and slowing down are key when it comes to organizing holiday celebrations.
