Artificial Christmas Trees Gain Popularity in Iceland

Only 32 percent of Icelanders were planning to buy real Christmas trees this year, down from 56 percent in 2012, according to a new survey by MMR. Artificial trees are gaining popularity with 56 percent of respondents preferring them over real trees this year.

The number of people who won’t put up any Christmas tree at all has also increased, ruv.is reports.

Respondents living in the capital region were more likely to buy real Christmas trees than respondents living in other parts of the country. People with a higher income were also more likely to opt for a real tree.

The survey was carried out for a week earlier this month with around 1,000 people participating.
