Holiday season’s most popular celebrity
Nearly 25% of respondents would like to send a Christmas card to Humberto Tan and Ilse de Lange as a token of their appreciation. In addition, 20% would give this famous Dutch an outlook or advice for 2015 with a Christmas card.
PostNL’s Consumer Market Director Barry Husman understands perfectly why the likes of Humberto Tan, Ilse de Lange and Guus Meeuwis make up the top 3 Dutch celebrities with whom people would most like to share their holiday wishes. “I feel it’s all part of the spirit of the times, in which we all crave authenticity and meaningful human contact. All three of these celebrities are warm personalities who have remained grounded and down-to-earth despite their considerable success. Those qualities appeal to people and make them want to give back some of that warmth and kindness this time of year – it’s all about taking the time to give people genuine attention. Receiving a Christmas card is still the best Christmas gift of all.”
