There are a bunch of new surveys about Christmas.  Here are the seven best things they found . . .



1.  It would take the average parents $1,400 to buy everything on their kid's Christmas list.


2.  The average person will lose about three pounds preparing for Christmas . . . but will gain about six pounds by the end of the year.


3.  3% of Americans who celebrate Christmas won't be exchanging gifts.


4.  95% of Americans celebrate Christmas . . . but only 62% of Americans will go to church on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.


5.  62% of people say they'll read your whole long Christmas letter, 24% will at least skim it . . . and 14% apparently don't care what your family has accomplished this year.


6.  The majority of people say hosting Christmas is more stressful than going to the dentist.


7.  And finally, 6% of people say they'd rather be alone in a desert than at home with their family on Christmas.
