It’s the season of giving, and Americans are speaking up about what they really want for the holidays this year. Hint: more than likely, it’s something green that doesn’t grow on Christmas trees.
To find out what Americans want to find under the tree and why, we made a list–and we checked it twice. After surveying 1,000 Americans, we found that most Americans agree that they want to find cash under the tree–but they don’t want to give it.
