Whatever your Christmas plans this year, chances are this festive period won't resemble any in recent memory. With the country still fighting the Covid-19 pandemic, restrictions on our daily lives force us to adapt our behaviour and our life plans to protect our health and that of others.
A new Statista survey in the U.S. reveals the changes people are making to their holiday plans to adapt to the current situation. At 33 percent, the most commonly cited change was to celebrate in a smaller circle than usual. In preparation for the event, 30 percent said they will be avoiding physical stores and moving their gift buying online.
Despite the extraordinary circumstances, only 14 percent said they aren't getting into the Christmas spirit. There also appears to be a general acceptance of the changes required with just 12 percent of respondents saying they think there should be no Covid-related restrictions during the festive period.
