WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL THE MOST NOSTALGIC OVER THE HOLIDAYS?

Tinsel everywhere!

For better or worse, the holidays are packed with NOSTALGIA.  (And Scotch tape, WAY TOO MUCH Scotch tape.)

A new survey asked people “What ignites the most nostalgia during the holiday season,” and the #1 response was:  Spending time with loved ones.

Decorating the Christmas tree was a close second, followed by seeing holiday lights, holiday music, holiday movies, baking cookies, cooking holiday meals, receiving a holiday card, and vintage decorations.

And some holiday traditions might ONLY be done for the sake of nostalgia.

In the same survey, 22% of people admit that they probably spend more time planning and putting up their decorations, than they do actually relaxing and enjoying them.
