The holidays should be a joyous time between family and friends, but doctors say the day after Christmas is historically one of the most dangerous days of the year. It's called "Christmas coronaries" and they seem to hit people when they least expect it.
From last minute shopping, to wrapping gifts, to dealing with the traffic, Christmas can be a stressful time of the year. Studies show there's a surge of cardiac cases in the days after the Christmas more than any other time of year. Cardiologists say people will ignore, chest pain and shortness of breath, and blame it on their heavy meal or for drinking too much.
Doctors advise you should take precautions to keep you out of the emergency room this Christmas.
