Most Atlantic Canadians say they put up an artificial Christmas tree to greet Santa Claus this year, according to a new poll by Narrative Research.
Results from the seven-day study, which polled 1,626 people, found 74 per cent of Atlantic Canadians planned to have an artificial tree, while 29 per cent opted for a real tree.
The company found Nova Scotians are more likely to have a real Christmas tree than other Atlantic Canadians, with Nova Scotia coming in at 42 per cent.
That’s followed by Prince Edward Island at 29 per cent, New Brunswick at 20 per cent and Newfoundland and Labrador at 19 per cent.
Meanwhile, four per cent of respondents had both.
Overall, 83 per cent shared intentions to set up a Christmas tree — artificial or real — this year, with Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador being more likely.
Around 96 per cent of Atlantic Canadians shared plans to celebrate Christmas. That leaves four per cent to celebrate Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus, or Winter Solstice/Yule.
