I’m about to give you the best Christmas present you'll get this year: 
You DON'T have to call your relatives on Christmas, and spend three hours
having the same conversation five times over. 

According to a new survey, 45% of people say they don't WANT to talk on the
phone on Christmas anymore . . . they just want a TEXT. 

46% of people say they still want a phone call, so it's basically a 50-50
shot whether each relative will be fine with just a text or not.  But
aren't you willing to play those odds? 

People who DO talk on the phone during the holidays spend A LOT of time on
the phone.  42% of people say they'll spend more than 11 hours on calls
with relatives . . . and 22% say it'll be at least 21 hours. 

The survey also found only 5% of men and 12% of women say they plan on
mailing out Christmas cards, or the dreaded FAMILY UPDATE
