Ruining Thanksgiving

A lot can go wrong. So, be thankful for insurance!

Oh, Thanksgiving – a time for family get-togethers, mounds of great food……and disaster. Yep, you should really be thankful. Don’t believe us? Take a look.

The perils of Thanksgiving.

Driving to your family’s house.

Did you know you’re more likely to get into a car crash than a plane crash? And that more people drive longer distances during the holidays than any other time of year? Sounds like more chances to get into a wreck. So, check your car insurance coverage before you hit the road.

Cooking the turkey.

There are tons of ways to get a turkey on your table, but a few of them might have your house up in flames.

Deep frying.

The practice was literally invented by someone with “Hold my beer” energy. So, if you just can’t resist the allure, use these tips to stay safe. Please. Don’t become another YouTube search result.

You walk away for one second. An electrical wire shorts. Someone leaves something flammable on the stove vent. And then FWOOSH! Now, your whole kitchen is crispy. Good job.

Same with literally anything put in an oven during Thanksgiving – greens, beans, potatoes, tomatoes, the whole lot. Watch your stuff while it cooks and get property damage coverage for your home, just in case.


You could also poison your whole family if the oven isn’t hot enough or if you don’t cook your food for long enough. So, take care to avoid that – you don’t want to endure the awkward holiday get-together that follows. Really.

“Love” bites from pets.

Fur babies may be cute, but they also have teeth and claws and things that can hurt you. Just hope that the pet owner has liability coverage for their home insurance to cover any of your injuries.


In some places, it’s already a winter wonderland – a world full of slippery, slidely, puddles of DOOM. There are lawns for people to slip on, trees and roofs cracking under the weight of snow, maybe even a car that spins out of control into your living room. Again, home insurance can come in handy for that.
