Do you think you will spend more or less during this holiday season than last year?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on December 21, 2007
“I will spend less. But I don’t think it’s in the amount you spend as much as the idea or thought behind the gift you give.”
“More. I didn’t spend anything last year, because I didn’t celebrate last year at all. This year, I’m more grateful and more interested in other people’s happiness.”
“Less. I don’t have a whole lot of money to spend, and neither do my friends. So we decided not to exchange gifts this year.”
“Probably about the same. We’re not going anywhere, so that helps us spend more on other things around the holidays.”
