O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum

More Germans (75%) believe that the tree is more essential for Christmas than family (65%). Three percent want to skip the whole thing. So we know that at least 13% of all Germans are going to be getting really crappy gifts this year.

Which brings us to ties. A tie is to gifts what Hamburger Helper is to sirloin steak. Remember our rule: Anyone who gives you a tie is automatically out of the will, unless it glows in the dark or plays a catchy tune.
