The New York Post: ‘Festive burnout’ ingredients: Christmas music, gift shopping, crowds, cooking

One in three Americans is anticipating an attack of “festive burnout” before Dec. 25, according to a new report.

A study examining the impacts of festive stress saw a third of respondents (35%) say they’re burnt out on the holiday season before Christmas comes.

The survey of 2,000 Americans also revealed that 68% of Americans also consider the holiday season, that special time including Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas, to be a “stressful” time.

The survey, conducted by Slumber Cloud, also found that the average American will spend 38 hours — nearly two full days — getting ready or preparing for the holiday season in some fashion.
