This time of the year, every media and opinion research group are doing surveys about something that has to do with Christmas and here's some that stood out.


It would take the average parents $1,400 to buy everything on their kid's Christmas list.  3% of Americans who celebrate Christmas won't be exchanging gifts.  95% of Americans celebrate Christmas, but only 62% of people will go to church for Christmas.  And 6% of people say they'd rather be alone in a desert than at home with their family on Christmas.

The majority of people say hosting Christmas is more stressful than going to the dentist and the average person will lose about three pounds preparing for Christmas but will gain about six pounds by the end of the year.  Now these are two I can identify with.
