San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 28, 2012
From company parties to setting New Year’s resolutions, the holidays offer a time of traditions, family, friends – and fun. MOGL, the leading restaurant loyalty platform that eliminates the need for coupons, punch cards, mobile payments and QR codes, today released the results of it’s recent “HOLIDAZE” survey, which highlights the anticipation and consumer sentiment that often go along with this “most wonderful time of the year.”
The national survey of more than 1,000 men and women found that most respondents (57%) want to “Have more fun” in 2013 as their top New Year’s resolution, followed by losing weight (22%), finding their soul mate (12%) or getting a new job (9%).
Also, the majority of people prefer to spend a holiday happy hour with Will Ferrell’s memorable character “Buddy the Elf”(31%) over Chevy Chase’s “Clark W. Griswold” (28%), Billy Bob Thornton’s “Bad Santa” (24%), or Dr. Seuss’s “The Grinch” – who came in last (12%).
When asked which celebrity chef they’d like to cook their holiday dinner, Anthony Bourdain scored the highest (32%), with Giada De Laurentiis close behind (30%), followed by Gordon Ramsey (27%).
Additional survey results included:
- COMPANY HOLIDAY PARTIES?
26% will attend their company’s holiday party at a restaurant this year, 12% at the office, 12% at a hotel ballroom – but 51% said “What holiday party?”
- DINING BEHAVIOR DURING THE HOLIDAYS?
12% say they go out to eat “a lot more often”, 35% say “a little bit more often”, 8% say “less often”, but 45% say they eat out just as often as they do any other time of year (no change)
- TIPPING DURING THE HOLIDAYS?
34% say they tip “a little bit more” than normal, 5% say “quite a bit more”, 1% double their tip, but 60% say there is no change in their tipping behavior at all
- HOLIDAY BONUS?
40% choose to stash their holiday bonus in a 401k account, compared to going on a shopping spree (33%), donating it to charity (16%), or taking it to Vegas to gamble (12%)
