Holiday Spending Poll

Since January 2017, the US economy has been steadily gaining ground. The average wages are up, the unemployment rate is way down, more people are working, consumer confidence and business confidence is up, and, as a whole, people are doing better now than they have in years. In fact, there are now more jobs than there are workers to fill them.

With all of this, and granted, this is the US and not the rest of the world, I thought it would be interesting to see if and how your spending habits for this holiday season have/will change.

  • Question of

    Do you feel that you’ve directly been impacted by the substantial increase in the US economy and decrease in unemployment?

    • We are better off this year than we were last year and our Christmas will reflect that. It is also a big church event. They’ve even talked me into singing in the choir for the celebration they’ll be having a few days before Christmas.
