Here's a piece talking about Christmas spending Some interesting info from it:
The average shopper is planning to spend $929 on gifts this holiday season according to the American Research Group. With the average U.S. family income of $55,775, according to the Census ACS survey, this means, on average, that families spend 1.66% of their total income on presents for Christmas.
We spend about $800 a year on Christmas and have for a decade or more. Since we've made substantially more than $56k per year, we are well below the national average.
Even in early retirement, our income is almost twice the national average, so we're still well below the average spent on the holiday.
How about you? What did you spend on Christmas this past season? And did you get any really cool gifts? ;)
