Be prepared 

  • If you have anything electronic for the children / wife / husband – it may pay you to know how it works 
  • Google the instructions
  • Charge the items up – take them out of the boxes , charge them up and put them back in the boxes
  • Gaming consoles , tablets , phones – will need the internet to work on Christmas day 
  • Batteries
  • Cables – buying a sound system / dvd players / printers make sure you can actually use them by checking that you have the correct cables

Social Media At Christmas

  • Think twice about broadcasting your location on social media – Facebook , Twitter 
  • Think twice about posting that Christmas or New Year picture of you doing something outrageous as it may come back to haunt you , remember if you would be embarrassed to see it in the Advertiser don’t take it or let it be taken of you

Use the holidays to learn about Social Media 

  1. Have a look at your privacy settings on Facebook etc and review them to make sure you are posting to the correct people
