‘Tis the Season to be Nervous, Lalalalalalalala

Montclair’s official website offers a page of "Holiday Safety Tips." And we thought the scary holiday was over.


  • Don’t display holiday gifts where they can be seen from a window or doorway. Store them away until needed. Even empty wrapped boxes are inviting to the criminals.
  • Be wary of solicitations for charitable donations.
  • Be extra careful of strangers coming to your door. Keep your doors locked. Criminals sometimes pose as couriers delivering gifts.
  • Shop before dark if possible, and with a friend.
  • And a few of our own:

  • Beware strangers bearing eggnog.
  • You think your credit card debt is bad now, wait til January.
  • You never know what kind of germs those shopping mall Santas carry. One word: Purell.
  • If you see a group of carolers, duck and hide.
