I’m sure by now everyone has decked their houses from top to bottom full of decorations! If your anything like us it will be the same decorations that have been used for many years with a few new additions.
I’ve been loving nosing at everyone’s Christmas decorations and the variations in tree designs and how full on some people go. Were pretty chilled with our tree and aren’t too fussed about it being symmetrically perfect, even Amelia joined in decorating this year!
Baytree Interiors recently looked into what everyone’s favourite Christmas decoration was via a survey and I was quite surprised with the results. 1000 UK residents were asked a series of questions to find out a bit more their Christmas decorations.
They were first asked ‘What type of Christmas tree do you have?’.
• A fake/plastic tree – 49%
• I don’t have a Christmas tree – 23%
• A real tree – 18%
• I don’t believe in Christmas – 10%
We have a plastic Christmas tree but I was actually quite surprised that not more people had real tree’s and I’m quite shocked that 23% don’t have a Christmas tree at all. For those who answered that they didn’t have a tree they were asked why and answers varied from them having young children and safety to travelling lots around the holiday period and not really needing one.
The next question asked was ‘What type of Christmas decorations are your favourite?’ There were multiple answers from a range of decorations to choose from.
- Christmas lights – 42%
- Christmas tree – 38%
- Baubles – 24%
- Tinsel – 15%
- Christmas wreath – 14%
We actually only have Christmas lights on our tree and around a small window but I know some people go all out so it doesn’t surprise me that this is a favourite. I love all the difference in Christmas wreaths so that’s probably a favourite but mine would definitely be the Christmas tree as it’s so traditional and just makes it feel super Christmassy!
Julian Potter from Baytree Interiors said“Although some people may not have space for a tree in their home, there are other decorations that can create the holiday spirit; Christmas lights, wreaths and Christmas stocking are a great way to add festive colour to the home whilst not taking up much space.”
What’s your favourite Christmas decoration?
