Christmas nappers surveyed

MEN are more likely than women to take a little cat nap after the traditional Christmas lunch, a survey has revealed.

The Australian National Retailers Association and American Express Annual Christmas survey found more than 45 per cent of men would take a nap after lunch, compared to 39 per cent of women.

Australians aged between 25 to 34 are most likely to slip away for a bit of shut eye (51 per cent), while two thirds of 45-54 year olds won’t.

Spending on Christmas food continues to be strong, with 76 per cent spending the same or more compared to last year and 24 per cent spending less.

Most Australians will spend $100 on the main meal of the day (30 per cent).
