2014 Holiday Party Poll: No, most people do not like eggnog

AUSTIN, TX – Finally, we have the answers to several age-old holiday questions:

No, most people (80 percent) do not like fruitcake.

No, most people (51 percent) do not like eggnog.

No, most people (62 percent) don’t want to go out on New Year’s Eve, although five percent say it’s a fun excuse to kiss people other than their significant other.

Yes, most people (73 percent) re-gift during the holidays, that is, they pass along to others gifts that were given to them. Bottles of wine, gift cards and candles are re-gifted most.

These are among the findings of a fun, new national survey of holiday party proclivities commissioned by The Salonniere, from interviews with top party hosts, caterers and florists to recipes and hostess gift ideas. The survey of 1,115 men and women nationwide, ages 25-54 with annual household incomes in excess of $50,000, was conducted for The Salonniere by an independent national research firm.

Perhaps it’s not surprising that 28 percent of respondents admitted to drinking too much at an office party.
