Zlatko "Tod" Todich, founder of Flowers24Hours said, "Just over 60 per cent of those who prefer not to go out stay in with their partner or family, 22 per cent with flatmates or friends, and 18 per cent spend a night in alone."
London (PRWEB UK) 14 November 2013
A poll of site visitors by online flower delivery service Flowers24Hours has revealed that 78 per cent of respondents much prefer to curl up on the sofa at home on a Friday night during winter, rather than spend a typical night in the pub.
When asked how their habits change during the darker months, the vast majority said that while during spring and summer they often spent Friday at the pub with colleagues or friends, as the colder nights of autumn and winter draw in, this shifted to spending the night in alone, with a partner or friends, accompanied by some good food and drink.
Just over 60 per cent of those who preferred not to go out said they would most likely just spend a quiet night in with their partner or family, while 22 per cent said they would be staying in with flatmates or friends. The remaining 18 per cent said their night in would consist of a night spent alone, which represents around half of all single person households in the UK.
