<p>Half of Americans said there’s not enough time in the holiday season to do everything they want to do (52%), according to new research.</p><p>A survey asked 2,000 U.S. adults about how they spend their time during the holiday season and found that 52% try to fit in as many festive activities as possible.</p><p>This may be why half of Americans also wish the holiday season lasted longer than it actually does (54%). While most of these respondents said up to two more weeks would suffice (59%), 41% wouldn’t mind if the holidays went on even longer.</p><p>According to respondents, it starts feeling like the holiday season in November (44%), but 35% said the early fall months, September and October, make them feel the excitement of the holidays.</p><p>Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Dutch Bros, the survey found that a third of those surveyed claim that they’re the most festive person they know and 74% said prepping for the holiday season puts them in a good mood.</p><p>But from last-minute shopping (44%) to wrapping presents (37%), the holidays can be a lot to keep up with, leaving 40% struggling to keep themselves energized during the season.</p><p>On average, people put 30 hours of work into holiday chores like planning, wrapping presents or shoveling snow.</p><p>Sixty-five percent agree that keeping up with the holiday season takes a lot of energy, and another 60% shared they’re busier during the holiday season than the rest of the year.</p><p>“The holidays are a fun but busy time, we know everyone wants to make the holidays special for their families and that can take a lot of energy," said Kristin Sha, senior director of product management at Dutch Bros. “Having holiday-themed drinks or ones that have holiday flavors are the best way to connect not only get into the festive spirit but also stay energized during the busy season.”</p><p>To get them through the holidays, half of Americans depend on caffeine (49%).</p><p>Seven in 10 try to treat themselves, even if to something small (71%), with three in five considering a nice warm cup of coffee as a nice pick-me-up during the holiday season (61%). A third of respondents opt for tea to warm them up, and another 30% need something that packs a bit more punch like an energy drink.</p><p>When it comes to their unique holiday traditions, Americans shared that they “wear costumes on Christmas morning,” put “a candle in a scoop of ice cream and whoever’s candle burns the longest opens the first present” or hide a “pickle on the tree and whoever finds it gets a special extra gift.”</p><p>Another respondent said their family eats “pizza on Christmas Eve” and another has “a group of friends gets together to create a holiday craft that we use as a gift for someone less fortunate.”</p><p>But even with those unique traditions, the results found that Americans haven’t abandoned the classics like eating/drinking their favorite holiday treats (72%), shopping for presents for loved ones (70%) or watching classic holiday movies (65%).</p><p>"Whether you love the hustle and bustle of the busy holiday season or still try to get in all the relaxing, the holidays are a time to enjoy taking a minute to enjoy a peppermint mocha or grab an energy drink on the run," said Sha.</p><p>MOST COMMON FESTIVE ACTIVITIES</p><p>-Eating/drinking holiday treats – 72%</p><p>-Shopping for presents for loved ones – 70%</p><p>-Watching seasonal movies – 65%</p><p>-Decorating the home – 61%</p><p>-Baking goods with loved ones – 53%</p>
