This list of stats from Askmen.com shows some of the activities over the holidays we may still be paying for. You may be able to relate to some of these…
You Had Your First Drink On Christmas Day At 9:05AM
You read that right. According to hotel chain Travelodge which quizzed 2,500 Brits on their Christmas Day habits, we can’t even wait till noon on Christmas Day to start pounding the Baileys.
Did You Watch Porn On Christmas?
Not as many did. The U.S. and U.K. are the top two in terms of most visitors to Pornhub on Christmas day but there’s a considerable 36% dip in traffic to the adult content video sharing website. The UK’s traffic dip is followed by Australia (-34%) and Canada (-31%). In India, traffic actually increases by 8% on Christmas Day.

The last Friday before Christmas is the most popular night for office parties — and also when pubs, bars and restaurants do their best business.

41% Of You Have No Idea What You Spent On Gifts
Almost half of us have no idea how much we actually end up spending on presents, a big red flag when it comes to budgeting if we’ve ever heard one. In fact, 30% of us don’t worry at all about our spending over Christmas, regardless of how much money we have (or don’t have).
