Hearts attacks most likely to happen on Christmas Eve

ALPENA, Mich. – A recent study will dampen your holiday cheer this winter season. More heart attacks will happen on Christmas Eve than any other day of the year.

Swedish study says people will most likely experience a heart attack by 10 pm.

Seniors, people with diabetes and those with a family history of heart problems were most likely at risk of getting a heart attack.

Doctors don’t understand why the risks peak at nearly 40–percent on this specific holiday.
