Merry Christmas from the McCrindle team

Monday, December 21, 2015

All of us here at McCrindle wish you a very Merry Christmas and a fantastic holiday break.  As social researchers we know that you'll be enjoying time with family and friends, and wishing health, happiness and peace to those around you. We hope you enjoy unwrapping the technology gifts as well as clothes and accessories you are likely to receive. Enjoy writing your Christmas cards, which would stand over 57km tall in a pile, and wrapping your presents – which would stretch 7,970km long (as a nation)!

We hope you enjoy the infographic we have put together, and that amidst the busyness of the season you have time to connect with family and friends, reflect on the Christmas story and enjoy the many things that make this country great.

Have a Merry Christmas, a fantastic 2016 and we hope you don't receive too many re-gifted presents!

- The McCrindle Team

Welcome to our blog...
