"Oh there's no place like home for the holidays..." or so the famous Christmas song says. Of course, for many people, it might also mean thinking about homeowners insurance. According statistics, homeowners insurance claims rise right after December. The holiday season, after all, can be a busy time for burglars, especially with lots of tempting gifts lying around. Plus, it's not just about losing stuff, but repair claims and liability claims can also increase with the unpredictable weather and with parties and houseguests increasing normal traffic in the home.
