Are You Allergic To Christmas?

People with allergies tend to be more sensitive during the holidays, due to the presence of allergy triggers such as candles, nuts, artificial and real trees, ballons and other decorations, according to the BBC:

The charity Allergy UK has issued a warning to allergy sufferers to be on their guard this year in case they come into contact with potential triggers.

It has even designed a poster - entitled 'Festive Season Alert' - highlighting the dangers.

Muriel Simmons, chief executive of Allergy UK, told BBC News Online the major problem is that exposure to potential triggers increases sharply during festive celebrations.
