Christmas Cards Bounce Back

Christmas trees are just as popular as ever, but sending cards for the holiday season appears to be making a comeback.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 54% of American Adults say they will send Christmas cards this year. That matches the high from 2012, a finding that had fallen as low as 45% in 2017 but had rebounded slightly to 49% a year ago. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
