No, it is not a trick question, but something to think about. Burglars love the holiday season and your locksmith can give you advice to help them get rid of that idea. Traditionally, the holiday period is a period in which the number of burglaries increases sharply. Not surprising, if you know that people leave their homes for a few days and possibly even weeks. It gives a burglar a sea of time to do thorough research around your home and choose the most favorable time to strike.
