Christmas Trivia: The French Write More Letters to Santa than Anyone Else [INFOGRAPHIC]

This infographic is about Christmas commerce, but since it is rendered irrelevant by the fact that there is no more Christmas commerce to be conducted I thought it might be fun to highlight the more trivial points:

  • The French write more letters to Santa than any other nationality. Say what you will about the French, but they probably got better presents than you this year.
  • Per capita spending on decorations was $45 USD. If you were French, you could have applied that money towards even better gifts.
  • Kids have a 15% chance of retaining their belief in Santa Claus past age ten. There appears to be great incentive for French kids to make that cut.

If curious to know your thoughts on this one. Does anything stand out?
