How are you celebrating your Christmas? Which shopping centers do you prefer for shopping needs? What's the economy pinching effect you have before Christmas?

What gifts do you intend to buy? Who are the people you wish to celebrate Christmas with?

A survey conducted a few days before Chrismas shows the majority of Kenyans are not spending like the other previous years in shopping centers. 

The majority of companies have closed their businesses due to bad economic turbulence in Kenya rendering many people jobless.

The findings of a recent survey by Trends and Insights for Africa (TIFA), a market research company, indicate that 11 percent of Kenyans do not intend to spend money at all this Christmas, due to the harsh economic times.

Due to the declining state of the economy, 42 percent of Kenyans surveyed plan to spend less than they did in the last Christmas and the other previous festive seasons.

Only 3 out of 10 respondents hope to spend more than they did last year. Six percent of Kenyans will spend the same amount they did in 2018.

The survey, conducted between December 17 and 22, shows that Kenyans will spend an average of Sh4,348 on travel and accommodation, foodstuffs, clothes, and family.
