Three in five millennials and 41% of Gen Z said it’s “important” they have the best holiday decor in their neighborhood, according to a new survey. A poll of 2,000 Gen Z and millennials found when it comes to holiday decor, a third (32%) prefer the classic, traditional decor — lots of reds and greens or blues and silver. Twenty percent prefer to keep everything wintery and white, while 14% like to embrace trendy, artistic decor for the holidays. For many, following a theme doesn’t stop at decor — 46% from both generations like their gifts to follow a specific theme and 52% are willing to spend at least $100 on wrapping materials to make sure gifts stick to an aesthetic. Commissioned by Michaels, and conducted by OnePoll, the study also looked into the holiday traditions younger Americans are following and sharing with others. Both millennials and Gen Zers prefer traditions like watching their favorite holiday movies (59%), cooking (56%) and baking (53%). Cookie swaps — where participants bake cookies and trade their baked goods — are also back: 47% are planning to participate in one this year, and 74% of those respondents reporting this is the first year after the pandemic they feel comfortable participating in a swap. Another highly popular holiday tradition included putting up a Christmas tree during the holidays (88%). Almost half actually prefer a faux tree over a real tree (46% and 26%, respectively) and 40% put up more than one tree in their homes. Traditions like Elf on the Shelf® were also found to be popular with one in five Gen Z and Millennials (22%) planning to participate for the holidays. Overall, 71% said they’ve been following the same holiday traditions for most of their lives, though 74% are open to creating new traditions. Social media is changing the landscape of holiday traditions, as 59% admit they find new traditions through the social apps they use daily. Meanwhile, others find new traditions through TV or in movies (43%) or are creating them with others by coincidence (41%). “Younger generations are continuing to make the holidays special by creating memories through new and old traditions,” said Mandi Clark, Lead Trend and Design Expert at Michaels. “Everything from decking out your home, to baking up homemade holiday treats and getting creative with your wrapped presents for loved ones play a role in making the holidays unforgettable.” The survey also aimed to discover the important role homemade goods play in the holidays. Four in 10 (41%) believe handmade gifts are the most meaningful to either give or receive during the holidays. One in four millennials also prefer to receive handmade gifts for the holidays. Over half plan to DIY their holiday gifts and decor this year (58%) or gift homemade baked goods (56%) to save money, though 47% said they “always” or “often” prepare their home for the holidays with handmade decorations. A majority of parents surveyed (84%) said they like to let their kids decorate the home for the holidays — letting them decorate the tree (75%), handcraft ornaments (57%) and make paper snowflakes (53%). “We’re also seeing more and more people preferring handmade and handcrafted gifts for the holidays,” continued Clark. “Sure, the rising costs of gifts can play a factor — but price aside, more people care about the meaning and thoughtfulness that comes with handmade gifts that can’t be replicated.” TOP 5 HOLIDAY DECOR STYLES 1. Classic, traditional decor (reds and greens or blues and silver) - 32% 2. Wintery and white (whites and silvers, shiny and metallic pieces) - 20% 3. Trendy/artistic (unexpected twists on classic holiday décor) - 14% 4. Modern/monochromatic (everything is decorated to fit a certain color palette) - 14% 5. Rustic (natural wood, earthy tones, plaids) - 9% Survey methodology: This random double-opt-in survey of 2,000 American Gen Z and millennial adults who celebrate a winter holiday was commissioned by Michaels between October 31 and November 3, 2023. It was conducted by market research company OnePoll, whose team members are members of the Market Research Society and have corporate membership to the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR) and the European Society for Opinion and Marketing Research (ESOMAR).

STORY: North Korean state media said Tuesday its leader Kim Jong Un received photos of “major target regions” in the United States taken by its recently launched spy satellite.KCNA said the batch includes photos of the White House, Pentagon and U.S. aircraft carriers. Seoul officials say the North’s claims could not be confirmed as it has not released the photos. Contention over the satellite spilled over into a snap meeting of the UN Security Council a day earlier, which was called to convene after last week's launch, following dozens of ballistic missile tests over the past 20 months.It resulted in a rare, direct, public exchange between the U.S. and North Korea.Here’s U.S. Ambassador Linda Thomson-Greenfield: “The DPRK is unabashedly trying to advance its nuclear weapons delivery systems by testing ballistic missile technology in clear violation of this council's resolutions.” In unplanned remarks at the end of the meeting, Thomson-Greenfield rejected Pyongyang's claims that its launches were defensive actions in response to military provocation by the U.S. and its allies. But extended an offer for dialogue “without preconditions.” "...the United States is threatening us with a nuclear weapon..."In response, North Korea’s ambassador Kim Song defended what he called his country’s "legitimate right" to develop its weapons systems on par with the U.S.North Korea has been under UN sanctions for its ballistic missile and nuclear programs for nearly two decades. But for the past several years the UN Security Council has been divided over how to deal with Pyongyang, with veto powers Russia and China arguing against further sanctions.Washington says such protection from Moscow and Beijing only emboldens North Korea to continue to flout UN resolutions.
