A Surpising Christmas Day, Stats Wise

I just took a quick look at my site stats for yesterday. I was curious to see how much drop-off there would be on a Christmas day that fell on Saturday. In fact, the number of visitors yesterday was dead average for a Saturday. Why is that, do you suppose? Do I have lots of non-Christian readers? Did everyone surf the Web to get away from their damn families? Did they hope I’d offer some last minute gift-buying advice (sorry about that)?

    I have visited your site couple of times yesterday. I dont have any other family other than my wife. For us it was a very quite day.

    I celebrate Christmas on the 24th if I am able to exercise my will. This is due to my European upbringing. I was shocked when I got out into the working world and discovered that people are expected to work on the 24th.

    This was one of the lucky years when I could do as I pleased; the 25th was just another day. Particularily so in light of the fact that I was able to get groceries, pick up a parcel at Greyhound and rent a video.

    Escape from the family. Sick three year old, a zillion relatives asking about my work and where I live… definitely requires a quick escape to my parents computer to surf a few websites.

    Very non-Christian, but I think a lot of people who wouldn’t call themselves Christian still take vacation or whatever.

    Me, I hung out with friends and partook of certain things that aren’t exactly Christmas tradition.

    Rest assured, I didn’t visit. In fact, I did something non-computer on Christmas. I laid in my bed sick as a dog and got fed chicken noodle soup. :(

    Many blogs, including yours, are something I read in my leisure time (when I’m not posting to my own site, something which is also a hobby). This time of year is fairly leisurely, so here we all are.

    I kind of thought you would have some tidbit to read on Christmas day. A special memoire or the such. I thought about it, but couldn’t past my post a couple of days earlier.

    I think the option of trying to run away from family parties is quite accurate! I’m sure my hubby and I would’ve been glued to the laptop screen, had we had access to any kind of connection. We were sort of banned from the 56k connection because it tied up the only phone line and there was no way we could use our phones to connect as we were in possibly the weakest connection area around London!

    Hope you had a good Christmas!

    PS – I noticed the same thing with my blog, which I thought had very little readership other than family and friends… I guess I’m wrong!
