While the holidays can really wreak havoc on our health, a new study from Sweden found the risk of having a heart attack rises nearly 40-percent on Christmas Eve.
The observational study analyzed the timing of 283,000 heart attacks over 15 years.
Researchers found specifically around 10:00 on Christmas Eve is the greatest risk.
That’s about the time parent’s are hoping kids are asleep so they can finish wrapping gifts.
Researchers also found mornings before 8:00 a.m. and specifically Monday mornings also have a high risk of heart attack.
They say more research needs to be done to find out what exactly causes the spikes.
