Christmas Plans and New Year's Resolutions

What do people like to do most over the holidays? For nearly 2/3rds of adults it’s spending time with family and friends – that’s according to a Harris poll of 2,455 adults cited by Media Life Magazine. Next: going to holiday dinners and parties (9%), finding and giving presents (6%), and watching TV specials and hearing holiday songs on the radio (4%).

When it comes to New Year’s Resolutions, losing weight continues to be number one, although reports the percent of people set on shedding pounds (27%) is down from 31% last year. Other goals include personal growth and interest (15%), personal finance (15%), career (12%) and education and training (9%).

Consider these stats as you create last minute Christmas and New Year’s imaging and promotions.
