The Holidays and Creating Safe Celebrations

The holidays are a time to enjoy the company of family, friends and coworkers. Creating a safe environment and encouraging healthy behavior saves lives. The following are some tips and resources to support you.

Holiday Celebration Tips:

  • At your holiday gatherings, offer plenty of nonalcoholic foods, drinks, and activities. See below for recipes!
  • Model responsible behavior by making sure that guests who have been drinking do not drive.
  • Let your child know what you expect. Tell your child that adults may be drinking, but under no circumstances is a child allowed to drink alcohol.
  • To lower the risk of alcohol poisoning, be sure to throw out partly empty alcoholic drinks. Children love to imitate adults, and if they have access to leftover drinks, they may taste the contents.
