“Getting great sleep is one way I can not only make my lists, but also check them twice,” said Santa Claus. “Now, Mrs. Claus and I can both get the quality sleep we need as we snuggle in for a long winter’s nap. And, considering all the visions of dancing sugar plums I’ve been having, I may just have to re-name one of the reindeers Dreamer.”
While his bundle of toys brings joy to children all over the world, the
long hours in the workshop spent filling his bag were taking their toll
on Santa. This holiday season, the
“For years, I woke up early to see what gifts the jolly old elf put into
my stocking, and now I am honored to gift him and Mrs. Claus a good
night of sleep,” said
While we know Santa has late nights in the workshop, many of us see our sleep impacted during the holiday season. According to Sleep Number’s 2017 holiday sleep survey, which polled more than 1,000 men and women across the U.S. ages 18 years and older:
- When compared to other generations, baby boomers are most likely to say they will not give up sleep in order to get it all done during the holiday season (52%), compared to Gen Xers (35%) and millennials (27%).
- Millennials are sacrificing sleep more than other age groups throughout the holiday season – they’re most likely to stay up late for Black Friday shopping, and lay awake due to holiday-related stress. In addition, this group is most likely to skip their workouts during the holiday season.
- Most who lay awake at night don’t have sugar plums dancing in their heads. 38% say they are stressed about shopping, and hosting family and friends.
- Overall, 57% of people said they will not skimp on sleep to shop for Black Friday deals.
- Men ages 55+ are most likely to be early birds… ahem, Santa!
Santa added, “And remember, if you want to end up on my ‘nice list,’ make sure you’re getting quality shut-eye… I’m always watching!”
