Thanksgiving In Georgia And South Carolina – How Generous Are We?
It’s hard to believe we are so close to the holidays already. And Thanksgiving is now less than 2 weeks away. It’s the time of year we reflect on all that we’re thankful for, spend the day eating our weight in delicious food, spend time with family, and hunker down on the couch to watch football. But when it comes down to it, there are some states that are more generous than others. So, when it comes to Thanksgiving in Georgia and South Carolina, just how generous are we?
The website Casino.org took a look at spending for Thanksgiving in each state. They wanted to see which were more generous, and which were stingy. The site ran a national survey of 2,000 people who said they were responsible for hosting Thanksgiving this year. From the results, they found out what the average spend for Thanksgiving dinner was around the country.
Turns out, the average household in the United States will spend $107.01 on dinner this year. And when it came to the most generous state, it happened to be our neighbor, Alabama. Their average was well above the national at $176.56. But, when it came to the highest spending city, that goes to Miami, who spends around $205 per household.
