According to a survey, the majority of Germans want Christmas especially for health
Many are already thinking about what to give their relatives and friends for Christmas. The choice of gifts is difficult despite oversupply and permanent advertising. However, the majority of respondents to a study want health rather than material things.
According to a survey by the polling institute "Innofact" in Düsseldorf, the majority of all Germans want health in particular. The survey asked specifically what you want for Christmas. 35 percent said health was most important to them. Only then did things like money (14 percent), but also peace with 11 percent rank in the survey. Banal things like clothing (4 percent) or perfume with 4 percent were not very popular according to the survey.
It was striking that older people in particular are concerned about their health. Respondents between 50 and 65 years of age (42 percent) stated that their health was most important to them for Christmas. Younger people - as other studies have already shown - do not worry so much about their health. Above all, they want material things. For example, 22 percent of 18 to 29 year olds said that Christmas was the most important thing for them. Health came in second place with 21 percent and in third place with 14 percent technical items. The survey shows that health is a valuable asset, but unfortunately it cannot be given away. The study was carried out on behalf of the online marketplace DaWanda. A total of 1,000 randomly selected German citizens aged between 18 and 65 were interviewed. (sb, Nov 29, 2010)
