For Most, Christmas Is Still A Religious Time

Americans continue to rank Christmas as the nation’s top holiday, and most will attend a religious service to honor the holiday season. 

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 59% of American Adults consider Christmas one of the nation’s most important holidays, while only six percent (6%) believe it’s one of the least important. Thirty-two percent (32%) place Christmas somewhere in between. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
