In addition, they said you’re more likely to have a heart attack around 10 o’clock on Christmas Eve.

The researchers also found a 20 percent increased risk on New Year’s Day and a 12 percent peak at Midsommar, a half-June Swedish holiday.

There was no obvious link between heart attacks and New Year’s Eve, Easter and sporting events.

The authors suspect that some holidays can lead to stress. Traveling, dealing with difficult relatives and cooking and activities can be challenging.

But despite their results, they noted that the association is not equal to causal relationship.

“Understand the factors, activities and feelings that precedes these heart attacks and how they differ from myocardial infarction experienced on other days,” wrote the team, “can help develop a strategy for managing and reducing the number of these events. “
