Perhaps what is not surprising is that age appeared to have the greatest impact on whether people click their way to holiday happiness or head to the mall for a dose of holiday cheer. Younger age groups are more likely than their older counterparts to do most of their gift buying online, and 30% of 18-34 year olds plan to do at least half of their holiday shopping online, compared to just 16% of those aged 65 or older. Conversely, two in five (39%) of those aged 65 or older plan to do all of their shopping in-stores, compared to just 25% of 18-34 year olds.
Fruitcake: Friend or Foe?
Though much maligned, Americans stand divided on whether fruitcake is "so right" or "so wrong," with older generations much more likely than those younger to say fruitcake is "so right." Nearly 2 in 5 (38%) respondents aged 65 and older say fruitcake is "so right," compared to just 1 in 5 (22%) of 35-44 year olds. When asked to rate their sentiments about holiday staples, women (58%) are more apt than men (48%)—10-points more likely—to consider canned cranberry sauce, "so right," ridges and all.
