A Different Holiday Season This Year


2020 has been a rough year for just about everyone. With two months still to go, more Americans say they’re preparing for the worst rather than prepping for the holidays. In fact, all this stress is leading to 67 percent saying they’re concerned the pandemic will spoil their holiday celebrations.

Usually around this time, Americans are making out their Black Friday shopping lists. This year, the poll finds many respondents are stocking up on home goods for a possible holiday season in quarantine.

Nearly half (45%) are loading up on face masks and protective coverings. Almost the same amount say they’re buying extra toilet paper, towels, and tissues to ride out the winter indoors.
