I love being with my family during the holidays! I look forward to sharing lovingly prepared meals, remembering past holidays when I see decorations that have been family traditions for generations, and yes, even the challenge of finding a gift for a loved one who “has everything!”

It’s easy to get swept away with the extra busy-ness and anticipation of getting on the road.

Easy to forget that our homes are more vulnerable while we’re away over the holidays…

But there are several simple things you can do to make your home more secure while you’re not there.  I’m sure you are familiar with the basics:

  1. Eliminate the tell-tale signs you’re away
  2. Unplug everything
  3. Create the impression you’re still home
  4. Lock it up and take the keys with you
  5. Don’t broadcast your absence

But you may learn some new “tricks” from this article 15 Ways to Keep Your Home Safe When You’re Gone.

And at the very least, add the relevant preparations to your list so you don’t forget them as you enjoy the holidays!
