Which is really very odd because the results indicate that 41% are NOT trying to sell art as Christmas gift while 51% are giving art for Christmas!

Are you planning to give art as a Christmas gift?
- 13% have made a huge effort to create attractive Christmas gifts
- 22% made more art recently with Christmas in mind
- 22% have not doing anything very different re selling art
- 41% are not trying to sell art as Christmas gifts
- 38% are giving art for Christmas (repeat event)
- 13% are giving art for Christmas (1st time)
- 22% are not buying art for Christmas
- 25% never buy art for Christmas.

For example: only 13% have made a huge effort to create attractive Christmas gifts while 38% are giving art for Christmas (repeat event) and 13% are giving art for Christmas (1st time).
