A Christmas Quickie

Seasons Greetings to everyone during the holiday season. In lieu of the normal posting this week you'll find an interesting graph that charts expected gift expenditures versus average wealth for a nation. The further rightward a country can be found the more generous it's people in terms of Christmas gifts. The further towards the top of the graph the more the population can generally afford.  Thus countries found more towards the top left give a smaller percentage of their income as gifts while countries more towards the bottom right give a larger portion. 

Residents of Luxembourg give the most on average (but can also afford the most) whereas the Irish seem to give most selflessly. Meanwhile it seems like the Netherlands give relatively the least for Christmas. 

Until next time have a happy holiday season!
