It's only November 19th, but we're about to give you the best Christmas present you'll get this year: You DON'T have to call your relatives on Christmas, and spend three hours having the same conversation five times over.
According to a new survey, 45% of people say they don't WANT to talk on the phone on Christmas anymore . . . they just want a TEXT.
46% of people say they still want a phone call, so it's basically a 50-50 shot whether each relative will be fine with just a text or not. But aren't you willing to play those odds?
People who DO talk on the phone during the holidays spend A LOT of time on the phone. 42% of people say they'll spend more than 11 hours on calls with relatives . . . and 22% say it'll be at least 21 hours.
The survey also found only 5% of men and 12% of women say they plan on mailing out Christmas cards, or the dreaded FAMILY UPDATE NEWSLETTER. (Sacramento Business Journal)
