Here's yet another sign we're letting Christmas completely take over November and proof that women put WAY more into things than men do. According to a new study from Daily Mail, the average woman has already started getting ready for Christmas party season.

The average woman puts in 49 hours over the next five weeks or so preparing for Christmas parties.  Here's how that breaks down . . .

  • 21 hours of shopping for outfits
  • 18 hours at the gym working out
  • 6 hours researching a hairstyle, then getting their hair done
  • 4 hours of makeup, fake tanning, and teeth whitening

The study also found women will spend more time preparing for Christmas party season than any other major event . . . including a friend's wedding, New Year's Eve, a birthday party, or a big date. This is shocking to me. I usually put on something nice for our Christmas party but I have spent a lot more time and money on a special occasion like a birthday or wedding.
