Why We Need Christmas

Merchants around the world depend on the Christmas season each year for 20 to 50 percent of their yearly sales.

The travel industry from airlines to gasoline stations see a nice bump during the holidays. People are going to buy airplane tickets and buy gasoline.

Grocery stores do better during the holidays. People cook more for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year. The alcohol industry does well during holidays. Wine, beer and Bourbon Whiskey all do well normally, and more so during December.

Charities and churches enjoy December. People give more money to the church in December than any other month. People who want to give make sure their gifts are given by Dec. 31. Churches normally have special children’s music programs during the month that increases attendance.
