Christmas is a great time to think about traditions, family, and those we love.
Many of us have Christmas collectibles, Family Heirlooms and the like that are priceless to us.
Have you thought about whether these are covered on your homeowners Insurance.
I remember a sweet lady to went to add to her precious moments Christmas ornaments and found out her personal collection was worth almost $100,000. She just liked the ornaments.
These and many things in your home need extra coverages to adequately protect them.
