Christmas Cards And Satsumas In Stockings Among Dying Christmas Traditions
Sending Christmas cards, carolling, and satsumas in stockings appear to be dying out as Christmas traditions.
A poll of 2,000 adults, who celebrate Christmas, found coins in puddings is the festive tradition most at risk of being lost.
40% of people think putting satsumas in Christmas stockings will fall by the wayside, while 38% think carolling is in danger of being forgotten.
The research by M&Ms, found other Christmas traditions falling out of favour include roasting chestnuts and lighting the Christmas pudding.
One in five say they've never tried Christmas pudding, with 45% of Gen Zs never trying the traditional Christmas dessert.
The survey also found 53% of Gen Zs say they by themselves a present at Christmas. Of these, 56% say they wrap it up, and place it under the Christmas tree to open on Christmas morning.
The most popular 'self-gift' items are cloths, perfumes or make up or skincare products.
