An online study by Robert Gordon University has shed new light on festive traditions.

A festive poll indicated the majority of people in the North-east are likely to eat Brussels sprouts as part of their Christmas lunch.

RGU’s survey was promoted through its Facebook page and Twitter account.

It revealed that 57% of those who completed the poll like Brussels sprouts, 36% said they didn’t and 7% said they’d never tried one.

The ten-question poll also revealed that just over a third said they will have a real Christmas tree this year, whereas 59% will have an artificial one and 10% will have no tree.

RGU principal Professor Ferdinand von Prondzynski said the study had helped to identify several key Christmas behavioural trends in the North-east and was part of the university’s growing presence across several social media platforms.

He added: “The poll has certainly captured our online community’s imagination and the results have shed light on a number of questions like the popularity of Brussels sprouts and whether or not people believe it will snow this Christmas.
