·1-min read

A new study claims you're more likely to have a heart attack during the festive period than any other time of the year, specifically at 10 pm on Christmas Eve.

Charity Burkland's husband, Stephen, died of a heart attack on Christmas Eve last year while messing around in the front yard with his kids. He was 37.

Stephen was overweight and had a family history of heart disease, according to his brother, David, a cardiologist. He claims the excitement of the holidays was a factor.
