Merry Christmas and a Miserable New Year


77% of Brits intend to stay in this New Years Eve



Merry Christmas and a Miserable New Year

Unadventurous Britons are shunning traditional New Year’s celebrations in favour of more subdued celebrations and even an early night, according to new research.

 

Britons are bah-humbug when it comes to New Year’s Eve celebrations, with a staggering 42% not planning to stay awake to see the clock strike twelve, while over three quarters (77%) of the nation intend to stay in this New Year’s Eve.

 

New research published in the New Year’s Eve Traditions Report and a survey of 2,000 UK adults by online casino destination, 888 Casino, revealed the top five reasons Britons plan to stay put this New Year.

 

Overpriced food and drinks (76%) topped the list as the number one reason Britons will be staying in on 31 December, closely followed by inflated transport costs (64%).

 

Lack of money (56%) was third, with Christmas present buying taking its toll and many having to wait until the end of January for their next pay packet.

 

37% of those staying in this New Year’s Eve blamed fatigue, with more than a third of those confessing to feeling ‘too tired’ to go out following December’s festive celebrations.

 

Not having anyone to celebrate with (21%) was the fifth biggest reason Britons are choosing to stay in this year.

 

Family commitments and childcare was also a factor for more than one in six (17%) Britons.

 

An 888Casino.com spokesperson commented: “It’s surprising to see that New Year’s Eve will be ‘just another night’ for many this year, however it is understandable after the annus horribilis of 2016. We hope that the nation’s 2017 gets off to a better start and that everyone strikes it lucky in the New Year ready to return to their crazy New Year’s Eve traditions and celebrations.”

 

Almost one in ten (8%) Brits confessed to being too ill to see in the New Year, while 6% will be too drunk by the midnight chime.

 

31% of Britons felt that 2016 was the worst year in recent memory and wasn’t worth celebrating.
