How much do you care about Christmas?

December 17th, 2020

Christmas Eve is approaching and for some people a nice holiday is waiting ahead. Some people find it easier than others to find the holiday spirit and enjoy the Christmas time, and it is different how much people care about Christmas. Traditions, decorations, gifts, Christmas foods and sweets are some of the important ingredients for some peoples Christmas and for others they do not care much about it. At Userneeds, we have found it interesting to ask our panel members in the Nordics and Ireland the question: “On a scale from 1-5, 1 being “Not at all” and 5 being “Very much”, how much do you care about Christmas?”

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year – some people say. Being together with your loved ones and keeping all the Christmas traditions can be more important to some people than others. We all have our different ways of celebrating Christmas and some do not celebrate it at all. We have found it interesting to set up a quick poll and ask our panel members in the Nordics and Ireland the question: “On a scale from 1-5, 1 being “Not at all” and 5 being “Very much”, how much do you care about Christmas?”

It turns out that Denmark is the panel with the lowest percentage of people who care very much about Christmas. Only 14 percent of the Danish panel members answer 5 on the scale. This is compared to the other countries where 25 percent in Finland, 27 percent in Sweden, 33 percent in Norway and 44 percent in Ireland are answering 5 on the scale meaning they care very much about Christmas. This means that the Irish panel members care the most about Christmas.

Some panel members are neutral on the scale and answer 3. This goes for between 18 percent (Finland) and 35 percent (Denmark). In between there are 21 percent in Norway, 24 percent in Finland and 25 percent in Sweden who are neutral when it comes to how much they care about Christmas.

Only between 12 percent (Ireland) and 23 percent (Denmark) answer 1 or 2 on the scale meaning they do not care about Christmas at all or are close to not caring.

Thereby the result from the quick poll show that Denmark is the country where fewest panel members care much about Christmas and Ireland is the country where most panel members care about Christmas as 66 percent answer higher than 3 on the scale.

We hope you found the results interesting.

Happy Holidays from Userneeds.
