A new survey conducted by trees.com is now showing that an extremely high number of millennial are upset over the abandonment of real Christmas trees in favor of artificial ones.
The Details: The survey polled 800 different millennials in the US to see how they felt emotionally about the holidays.
What they found was startling, according to the survey:
- 84% would be upset if their parents switched to a fake tree
- 71% say that having a real tree significantly affects their ability to enjoy the holiday
- Two-thirds of those with parents who already switched to fake trees said the change upset them
In addition 7 in 10 say having a real tree significant impacts their ability to enjoy Christmas.
For an explanation of what drives Millennials’ opinion of Christmas, the surveyed group responded that the majority of it came from fond memories of their childhood.
