NEW YEAR’S EVE IS THE TIME TO MAKE YOURSELF MORE LIVING, according to a new Gallup poll.
In fact, Americans have a long tradition of making the New Year a celebration, according the poll, which found that in the 1950s, 60s and 70s, Americans were all over the place celebrating the new year, from Christmas trees to Christmas trees, fireworks and carnival rides.
“Americans today are celebrating the New Years by spending most of the day inside,” Gallup wrote.
That tradition has persisted in the years since, Gallup said.
Even when Gallup found that Americans celebrated the holidays with more or less the same frequency as they did in the past, they were more likely to be happy about the new years.
Americans were also less likely to say they were happy that their new year was less stressful than the previous year, Gallup found.
More than half of Americans said they were at least somewhat satisfied with the new Christmas decorations, according a Gallup survey released last week.
