It's no secret that Christmas is expensive, but when you really dive into the numbers... WOW!!
A study conducted by OnePoll found that Americans spend nearly $100,000 in their lifetime to celebrate the holidays.
They also found the average person will spend $1,556 in preparing for the holidays and getting their homes ready for guests.
Broken down over a single festive season, the average American spends $235 on holiday home decor, $375 on holiday gifts, and $645 on other festive hosting essentials. [via NY Post]
Alongside our home spends, we’ll also spend a further $301 on food and drink during a single holiday season – with the average host estimating they entertain 10 people throughout the festive season.
