I find it ironic that placed to the right of the poll is an ad for a credit card. If people reduced their spending during this holiday buying frenzy and donated some time, just one hour, to an organization that helps the impoverished, it would be more satisfying than purchasing a gift perhaps one really can't afford. When we start measuring how the holiday season is viewed as a success by how much time is donated, rather than how much the consumer spends, we will be better for it as a society.
