Many Christmas songs contain lyrics that might lead revellers to do things that have a high level of risk. In the very popular ‘The Christmas Song’, for example, the lyrics make ‘Jack Frost nipping at your nose’ seem like a harmless winter occurrence, whereas it is actually very dangerous to allow extremities to become frostbitten and can lead to tissue loss and permanent disfigurement.
As a precaution, I have highlighted some of the most severe examples of health and safety violation in some of the most popular Christmas songs. Be safe, people. Happy Christmas and I’ll see you in the New Year – if we all survive!
