The Christmas traditions that millennials and Generation Z follow

Three in five millennials and 41% of Gen Z said it is “important” to have the best Christmas decorations in their neighborhood.

A survey by Michaels and OnePoll of 2,000 Americans from Generation Z and millennials found that 32% prefer classic and traditional decorations that include red and green or blue and silver.

However, 20% prefer to decorate with white decorations.

In addition to decorating, young Americans revealed the Christmas traditions they follow and share with others.

Millennials and Gen Z prefer traditions like watching their favorite Christmas movies (59%), cooking (56%), and baking (53%).

Other popular Christmas traditions include decorating your Christmas tree (88%). 46% of millennial respondents prefer an artificial tree, compared to 26% of Gen Z who prefer having a real tree.

84% of parents surveyed also said they let their children decorate the house by putting up a tree (75%), making homemade ornaments (57%) and making paper snowflakes (53%).

Overall, 71% said they have followed the same Christmas traditions for most of their lives, although 74% are open to creating new traditions.

In fact, 59% of respondents said they found new traditions they could follow through social media.

“Younger generations continue to make the holidays special, creating memories through traditions new and old,” said Mandi Clark, design expert at Michaels. “Decorating your home, baking holiday treats, and wrapping gifts for your loved ones can make the holidays unforgettable.”

When it comes to the holidays, respondents believe that giving gifts and homemade desserts is what makes that time of year special.

41% think that handmade gifts are the most meaningful to give or receive during the holidays. And giving gifts can also be a way to save money during the holidays, according to nearly 60% of young people surveyed.

“We are also seeing more and more people preferring handmade gifts for the holidays,” Clark continued. “People care more about the meaning that handmade gifts carry and that cannot be replicated.”
