Busy times for adjusting Christmas gift claims



Christmas decorations roasting on an open fire. Reindeer stolen from your lawn.

Such are among the 12 most common insurance claims, according to London-based insurer Aviva PLC, which recently released its list of "common festive fiascos" that it handled in December and January for the past five years.

To avoid a claim, here is a list that homeowners might want to check twice:

  1. One hundred and ten cracked TVs, knocked while customers set up or took down Christmas decorations.
  2. Seventy-seven candles, with candles burning dining tables, flames lighting fires on Christmas decorations and wax spilled on carpets.
  3. Sixty-eight carpets and floors stained or damaged by water from real Christmas trees.
  4. Twenty-seven Christmas party accidents where property was lost or stolen while customers were celebrating. Popular items included cell phones, jewelry and watches.
  5. Fifteen items were accidentally thrown away with discarded wrapping paper. Lost belongings included glasses, earrings and hearing aids.
  6. Eleven cases of feet going through roofs while customers picked up Christmas decorations from their attics.
  7. Seven sets of lights caused fires when they overheated.
  8. Six stoves were destroyed during the preparation of the Christmas dinner, with pots and pans dropped on hotplates and hard-working ovens catching fire.
  9. Five decorative reindeer have been stolen from gardens.
  10. Four Christmas card disasters: a pot of ink knocked on a carpet, a telephone and the center of a porcelain shattered while writing Christmas cards and spilled superglue on a sofa while making handmade cards.
  11. Two gold rings: A customer made meatballs and took off the rings while she prepared pastries. Unfortunately, they were thrown out with the rubbish when they were cleaned.
  12. A fall from Santa's sleigh crashed into a house and damaged a doorway when the horses pulling the vehicle were frightened.
