Champagne Safety

If you think a hangover is the only thing to worry about when popping a bottle of champagne, think again.

The American Academy of Pathology says, "Champagne corks are one of the most common holiday related hazards to the eyes."

They offer a few tips to safely open a bottle of bubbly. Chill your champagne; a warm bottle is more likely to pop unexpectedly.

Place a towel over the entire top of the bottle and twist the cork, don't try to use your thumbs to pop the top off.

The AAO says these easy safety tips can help make the holidays injury free.
