It Takes Adults This Many Weeks To Prepare For The Holidays…

No wonder we're all exhausted come January!

Between planning and decorating, it takes the average adult six weeks to prepare for the holiday season.

According to a new poll of 2,000 U.S. adults who celebrate a winter holiday, planning takes the majority of those six weeks.

The average person will spend about five weeks, planning presents and meals for the holiday season and take an additional seven days decorating…

And for all that goes into decking their halls, 22% of respondents admit that they spend more time planning and putting up their decorations than they do relaxing and enjoying them.
