Are you changing your holiday plans because of the economy?

Martha Durgy


No. I’m traveling to Michigan to see family. I am flying out of Eagle because I got a great deal on a ticket. We tried to cut back (on gifts), but we decided that was no fun.

Keith Seigerman

Aspen and South Hampton, N.Y.

No, I’m spending the holidays in Aspen. I live here part-time. The only plan that will change is probably I’ll spend less money.

Kristen Walsh


I’m not, because my parents are helping me out. Well, they have kind of changed, because my parents bought the [plane] ticket for me.

Mike Albert


They’re not changing. We have family for Christmas up here.

Bob Crum

Tucson, Ariz.

My holiday plans are to stay at home and be as frugal as I can be. Lovingly frugal.

Marisa Sportelli

Thousand Oaks, Calif.

No. We’re visiting my family, but we’re traveling by car. We would have done that regardless of the economy. Spending less on presents? Probably, yes.
