Community Survey: How traditional are your holidays?
When it comes to holiday celebrations, local residents like theirs seasoned with traditional family events.
In a cellphone survey of 200 residents in Atlanta, Brookhaven, Dunwoody and Sandy Springs conducted via 1Q.com, respondents chose celebrations based on or including family traditions by 3-to-1 over ones in which family traditions played little or no role.
“The best way is to be with family and friends,” one 60-year-old Atlanta man wrote. “Laughing, sharing food and enjoying one another.”
Food played a big part in holiday traditions described by many respondents. “Food! It’s all about food!” a 27-year-old Atlanta woman said.
