Just ask Clark Griswold…
A new survey measured the time spent behind the scenes, and found that, on average, people spend 34 HOURS of their lives untangling holiday lights. (Which honestly seems like a CONSERVATIVE number.)
Here are some other results:
We spend more than TWO DAYS of our lives decorating Christmas trees.
A day-and-a-half picking up or vacuuming pine needles from LIVING trees.
Two-and-a-half YEARS planning and preparing the main holiday meal.
And 164 weeks . . . or just over THREE YEARS . . . preparing for guests to arrive. (To be clear, that’s three years cleaning and tidying up . . . not three years waiting for a pandemic to be over.) (???)
