I can hear you asking "but you've told us what percentage of cards are charity cards" or "what percentage of cards have snow on them" at this point. Au contraire, my friends. I haven't told it to you explicitly, but you can certainly work it out from the three graphs above, if the mood takes you.
So that covers glitter on cards, but then I started to think about something which someone else said to me. "I think women are more likely to write the Christmas cards out than men!". So let's look at whether the cards were written out by a man or a woman.
So who are these people who are sending the cards? Friends, family, neighbours?
So, I hear you shouting, what on earth is the point of all this? I've already shown that you can't use a quick glance at a card and use whether it's "glittery" or not to work out whether it's a charity card. But if you find yourself in our house around Christmas, there is something you can tell about a card by giving it a quick glance. Have a quick look inside the card and count the words - not need to be exact - just roughly count the number of hand-written words... then look at the graph below...
There you go - who said statistics were useless...?
